I would think the recomendation should be to get a fast prime and

It's a typical recommendation coming from pros to use fast primes and shoot available light without flash. Available light forces one to open up the lens and misfocusing (within the spec!) can bring a lot of disappointment to newbies who heard about primes being incredibly sharp.
