This makes me not want to do flash and invest in a fast lens. seems like flash just freezes the motion as you say. with a fast lens can do everything

Flash is a higher quality solution, giving you the ability to use optimal settings on your camera to get sharp, low noise images. As mentioned, a flash can stop anything.

A fast lens, if you open it up all the way to let in more light, will have a narrow depth of field and most of your scene is likely to be blurry. Also, the stuff that is in focus will likely be blurry as well due to lens aberrations.

Sure, I use fast lenses anytime I’m not in direct sunlight, but if I want truly quality results, I’ll use a flash.
