77mm/1.8 ltd or the DA*50-135mm/2.8 seem to fit your criteria quite well

It would be useful and helpful if you can later share your experience and post some new results. Every situation is different and your experience might be helpful to others.

Happy shooting ...

i think the 77mm f1.8 will fit your needs, unless you get a tad too far from the action if like me you like a razor thin DOF to bring out your subject. that is a great fast portrait lens.

To keep the picture sharp you need to shoot at a higher f-stop anyway, so higher ISO maybe the only way to do. Maybe time to upgrade camera body.
