Your clients are never going to notice (or care) about the difference between 1.2 and even 1.8 Don’t bother wasting your money unless you absolutely NEED 1.2 because you are shooting in such low light all the time.

For me, that's the thing about doing something "properly"... it doesn't matter if no-one else knows or notices, as long as I know.

If someone cant get quality photos with an f/1.8 lens and need f/1.2 they should probably pick another profession...

Just say no to bokeh porn and obliterating backgrounds. Its an awful, hipster fad that is thankfully starting to fade away.

I think you might mean, and want to say,  "In my opinion" when you say this stuff as I'm sure you're aware that your opinion isn't the only valid one out there. If you don't, you come across as arrogant and I'm sure you wouldn't want that.

If someone wants to use f1.2 instead of f1.8, for whatever reason they have, then they should do so and certainly not listen to anyone who tries to dictate otherwise. Likewise, I will take a photo as I see proper and to the best of my ability rather than just providing some thing that will do. I know it's probably a bit outdated but I have pride in what I do.
