Z5 And Low Light AF...
1

The Z5 is often knocked for its AF tendancy to struggle in lower light situations.  Now I've not experienced this yet and I have shot with it in deep twilight as well as indoors but here's my question:

Knowing that Z cameras will used the aperture set from wide open up to f/5.6 for AF and beyond that they will open up the lens to f/5.6 for focusing purposes,  wouldn't any potential situation where the lights are low, benefit from a lens with a wide aperture, 1.8, 2.0, even 2.8?  I'm thinking that if you know you're going to be in that situation, using a lens of that type would increase the light available to the sensor and thereby increase your chances of getting a good focus lock.
