As to shooting moving people in low light you will need a minimum
shutter speed of 1/60th to stop the movement and avoid getting motion

Yes. This is the kind of picture I want to shoot. ISO 1600, f/1.4, and the minimum possible shutter speed. With the Pentax, it is almost impossible to lock the focus in a reasonable time in this light level.
