Small and fast-- camera/prime lens combo
1

If you want to gather a lot of light and not carry a lot of gear, what camera/lens combo do you turn to?  I'm looking for  f/1.8 or faster on FF, f/1.4 or faster on smaller sensors.  The lens should be somewhere in the normal to mild tele range, say 40-90 mm equivalent. The goal here is successful shooting in low light, particularly indoors where no flash is allowed.

If you think the best alternative is a manual focus lens, please recommend a small camera with great manual focus support.

In the realm of autofocus, does anything beat one of the smaller Fuji cameras and the very compact 35mm f/1.4 for size/weight and low light performance?
