The days of fast lenses are numbered.

Since I buy fast lenses primarily for shooting high-speed subjects in low-light, none of the computational photography tricks will make any difference.

We're already seeing ways to get convincingly good shallow DOF effects without needing large, heavy, and altogether encumbering fast glass. This trend will only accelerate as computational photography comes into its own.
