best setup for low-light and portrait under $1200...?

From reading of reviews here, it seems the very best low-light and portrait performance on a budget under $ 1200 would be available with the combination of a Nikon D5100 and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50 mm 1:1,4 G prime lense, which is said to work well as a standard lens and a "short" portrait lens.

From the reviews here, I gather that there may be other cameras that outdo the D5100 on a lot of things, but apparently not when it comes to low light performance anywhere near its price range...?

If anybody thinks I got that wrong and knows a better low light kit, please do let me know
