Has new software and dense sensors reduced the lust for some of the pricy "high speed" lenses?

Background, I used to do sports and required a then expensive, 2.8 lens and tri-x film pushed to ASA (ISO)1200 to get a good, printable image so excuse my 1960's enthusiasm.

Now, with a 50+ mp sensors, image and lens stabilization, Gigapixel and denoise or other ai means, I find I may not really have a practical need, other than bokeh, for a big, expensive, heavy, single purpose lens.

Have camera manufacturers  and software developers lessened the consumers need for high priced glass or is big glass still the boss?  (Specifically wondering about f4 vs f2.8 but many examples would apply).
