I do shoot a range of shots at different settings.

Elsewhere, you said that having to shoot at slower shutter speeds in lower light makes it useless ... yet here you are, making good use of 1/60s.

That suggests to me that maybe, just maybe, people might not find the lens useless even if it can't do fast shutter speeds in low light.

But I have a choice to use slower f stops, notice its at f8. with a f11 lens that would not be possible. plus it's a 70-200mm lens which can be used more easily at slower shutter speeds.
