I'm just pointing out that the 2 aspects, image-quality vs getting-the-shot, do not embody exactly the same criteria as they are generally priorities for different situations, not necessary directly comparable.
'Getting the shot' ALWAYS trumps sensor-dependent image quality. ALWAYS.
Right? I can't quite grasp the notion that they're competing interests.
Do I sometimes stumble into a great image? Sure. Couple weeks back shooting a model on the beach under harsh sunlight, I either overshot or killed the batteries in my flash (don't recall which), and I got a really cool quasi-silhouette with a deep blue hue and gorgeous edge highlights on her shoulders and knees.
So yah, sometimes when you don't get the shot, you still get the shot. As a hard and fast rule, however, if you don't get the image you set out for, the quality is insignificant.
