I need it for stopping power in bright light even without a very wide aperture. What I mean I shot a hockey game outdoors in bright sunlight, and part of the arena was in the shade. I wanted to keep my shutters above 1000 to stop movement, my aperture as low as possible to fade out some annoying backgrounds and my ISO at 100 to keep my dynamic range up to deal with the glaring snow and black uniforms. Between 1/1000 and 1/8000 only gives 3 stops of difference and I found myself having to continually adjust my aperture to compensate for the variety of exposures needed. I found myself wishing for 1/16000 second exposure that day. I'm sure a better photographer could have found a better solution but that's just my 2 cents
Buy an old canon 1d classic, I have one and it can shoot at 1/16,000 of a second. Not my photo but an example of 1/16,000!
