The aperture is a very important physical property of the lens: the larger the aperture (and hence the smaller the ƒ/number) the brighter the lens is, and the shorter the exposure (and ISO) is needed for the same brightness, allowing for better handheld low-light shots (specially if optical image stabilization is also available).
