John if you have A DSLR like 99.999 % of all the other photogs are shooting
every day with when you are indoors or at night you have no reason to not
stop action PLUS get everything in focus. Which means stop down.
Google photojournalism or picture of the day and try to see how the bokeh is
doing in today's world. Good luck doing so because you won't find any bokeh
. Everything is in focus now and blurry pictures are not in vogue.
64,000 is not even fast. That's what my D700 tops out on on auto iso. Lots
of other cameras are going a lot higher. Several stops.

Thing is remember this.
64,00o sounds ridiculously fast.
But its only two stops faster than 1600.
Two stops is not the difference between 1.4 and 16.
But the difference between 1.4 and 2.8
60th and 250th.
Its a  swift kick in the pants not a push off a cliff.
The main thing is; you get used to it. And after that its not the kind of
thing  you want to not have.
