'There's no law stating that simply because you own a super-fast lens you must shoot it at or near maximum aperture.

But there should be'.

"Owning a camera does not make you a photographer, it makes you a camera owner"

I can't remember who said it and seem to remember it being attributed to more than one person

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

I once noticed a young woman about to photograph Kings College Chapel in Cambridge, with the lens cap on her small 35mm. As I walked past, I said "Take your lens cap off". She gave me a stony look, as though I had made an immoral proposition. Ah well, you can't help some folk.
