I buy fast lenses for low light use and fast cameras for shooting sports. That's the problem with polls like this, not enough relevant choices.

The term "fast" in the OP was about speed in the type of "lens speed" - light gathering. In this context, a "fast camera' is one with a large sensor.

Really? That's a new one on me! In that case I use fast lenses and a "fast" FF camera for keeping my ISO lower in low light and keeping my shutter speed up when shooting sports or a combination of the two. That makes my choice #1 since I'm not all that interested in shallow DOF but I can't change my vote.
