Maybe you just need a faster prime for your Pentax?  Or two, one for concerts one for the living room?

Nah, my Pentax is already too old. Really bad AF and really awful high iso IQ. Nevertheless it still works ok when shooting with good light. Besides, I need a smaller camera for "paid" concerts, to where you cannot take a dslr, but maybe a M4/3 would slide..

I agree primes are essential, but I have been shooting with a Tammy 70-300 and results are not bad at all
