You're right on target, ED. With a fast prime and a high ISO setting you can almost shoot in the dark.
For example: this shot was taken at our zoo's "Creatures of the night" exhibit. There are a few black lights around but the exhibit is almost in darkness.
This is a shot of a White-nosed Coati (that I could hardly see) taken with a 30D, 35 f/1.4L lens with these settings - 1/60s f/1.4 at 35.0mm iso800
Ed, here's one more that was taken with available candle light.
same camera and lens - 1/125s f/1.4 at 35.0mm iso400
