It is interesting that with non-pro lenses, the tradeoff between wider zoom vs faster apertures tips in favor of wider zoom. I suspect this is consumer-driven. Maybe it is because people feel they have their cell phones to shoot in lower light?

I think you would still be far ahead to use high ISO on you FF camera than rely on a cell phone in low light. The only thing a cell phone has over most FF cameras is a built in light. You could use your cell phones flashlight and take the picture with your FF camera and even that little light would make a big difference.
