Phil, I profoundly doubt that they have 4,600 or 5,400 ft elevations (like the passes in my immediate vicinity), let alone an 8,500 ft elevation where willie_901 lives -- actually, there in Show Me State, they call little hills of mere 1,630 ft huuuuge *mountain peaks*
I guess, we can agree: it's useful to have more than one vehicle. (And when one has more than one house, in different environments, this applies the more; our Subaru and our Ford are the right choice when we go skiing in the resort where we have our weekend cottage; when we go swimming, playing tennis, whatever, it's something different of course! Wait, the Ford is also good when I'm my children's fencing chauffeur
Back to lenses: the ultra-fast WA lens may be useful under certain conditions; but it's certainly not the ideal all-(a)round lens!
