I see many top end DSLR's have a speed of 1/4000 sec , how often would you find the need of 1/8000 sec for creative situations and or in general shooting situations ?

Thanks for your thoughts.
I think this question you should ask yourself. For example myself I have never used shutter speed above 1/1000 for almost 40 years I have used the camera so to me a camera with high shutter speed is no advantage.

There is one thing though and I don't know if it's true. Many of my old 35mm SLR the top shutter speed of 1/1000 are not accurate so if my Nikon F5 with top shutter speed of 1/8000 and that may not be accurate but is the 1/1000 speed is any more accurate???
