I disagree - it's to do with both. Which is more important will vary depending on your subject matter and circumstances. Original poster WPJ had already talked about shooting theatre performances - the lighting in all sorts of performance venues can be very low, which means that it is a positive advantage having a lens that can hoover up as many photons as possible.

Of course, depth of field is just as important in other applications.
