Assuming your subject is static, you can try this:

1) use external constant light source (hot light, LED light, etc.) so you can obtain accurate manual focus,

For static this might work, I must try this.

As in my anwer above I also shoot action from frog perspective in dim light situations.
Here I see some similar problem.

2) switch the camera to MF from AF, switch off light source, and do your low-light shooting.

Here is where I am very happy that I at least have an OVF:)
