I hardly see how this is less logical than once-and-for-all stating that Pentax (or any other brand) is useless for true pros because you can't get modern autofocus 24mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, and 135mm f1.8 lenses for K-mount. I'm not sure which fallacy to look at first...
just imagine haw beautifull is FALLACY of perfectly separated subjects wit f1.4 instead of 2.8.... for this FALLACY im gathering the money to buy FA*85f1.4....

That's not a fallacy. I'd like one too.

There's just no logic that allows you to connect Pentax's lack of modern faster-than-f2 lenses in the 24mm, 35mm, and 135mm focal lengths with non-viability as a camera system for professional photographers. I mean, for some professionals, the more DOF the better. Such lenses are irrelevant to them.

I'm starting to miss the connections in your train of thought.

I would call that a train of thought, just not one that I agree with. Cameras and lenses are just tools. If there's no one to use them, then there's no such thing as any of them being "better" or "worse," they're just lumps of metal and plastic and glass until someone picks them up and turns them on. So yes, by the very nature of a camera's reality as an inanimate object, "better is always just better for somebody."

Question: Which is better for my dog, the D700 with a 24mm f1.4, or a broken holga?

Answer: the holga, it's easier to chew on.
