Have you ever shot indoors?

In my acceptably lit living room my GX1 at ISO1600 shooting at f/2.8 requires a shutter speed of 1/15 - 1/20 sec.  I have to push it to ISO12800 to get a shutter faster than 1/100 and then the image looks like it came from a point and shoot from 2003.

You have got to be kidding if you think that fast lenses became obsolete "a while ago".  Sure, I suppose if I was shooting a 5DIII the image wouldn't be that bad, but that's the current best of the best and it would still be weak.

Theoretically this concept is silly. Practically it is a sick joke.  When I can freeze motion in a dim room and get a nice image with a slower lens then we can start talking about this.  But I can't, even with a fast lens.  Maybe a 5DIII user can, but that's not the forum you posted this inanity on.
