Why do you buy fast lenses/cameras?

Image quality and build quality -- aperture is secondary

I'm looking first for image quality, then build quality. In most cases the premium quality lenses also feature faster aperture. Since I use mostly zooms that pushes me to the f4 and 2.8 lenses.

FWIW, I'm really not interested in super fast lenses. Anything beyond 2 or 2.8 the depth of field becomes too shallow for anything I do, and with the kind of ISO performance we get today low light is no problem.
