What about fast-moving subjects in dim light?

I know that someday we'll have EVFs that are just as good as OVFs for very fast-moving subjects in very dim light, but are we there now already?

Just curious.

What would you consider dim light for action? We can discuss it using brightness value if exif includes it or calculate it using iso, aperture and shutter speed. Would brightness value of 1 suffice or do we need to go into negative territory?

I'm not sure because my DSLR won't go there without flash. I have the most powerful shoe-mounted flash available for my DSLR and I use it often with my young kids running around in very dim indoor lighting. Of course I bounce it whenever possible. So -- how are today's EVFs for small children running around in very dim indoor lighting?
