As a hobbyist photographer my normal D5200 suits me just fine for 90% of what I like to shoot. I've had a couple recent opportunities to shoot some concerts and have realized that my D5200, while it does a passable job in low light (twilight etc.), it's sensor just isn't up to the task of holding the level of detail I'm looking for in the dynamic and often poor lighting conditions present at indoor concerts.

My question if I'm going to rent a FX camera for a weekend of concerts, which out of these three would be the best performance for the $$$, D4s (~$200), D800E (~$110), or Df (~$100)?

I realize the D4s is a powerhouse, but is the extra $100 worth it?

Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.

Not that I shoot concerts, but sometimes the venue or type of concert can put parimeters on what you shoot.  Will there be any issues with the size of the body or the noise of the shutter?  Personally I have a D4 and an 800e ( + 700 ) and if size of body and shutter size are a non issue, then I would take D4S.
