The FA 150 2.8 is pretty fast focusing. It might be too long for your needs. Also it's noisey screw drive. But I doubt that matters much a Metal Festival 😉

645 in low light, just the lamp and a reflector

The Contax 80/2, or Hassy 110/2 aren't that big

I use my 645Z frequently for lower light shooting, 2.8 @ 1/160 and ISO 6400 ish. The files are great to work with at high ISO, but as people have said the 2.8 glass and the need to keep the shutter speed higher doesn't really make it ideal, but it works for double duty. You can get away with lower handheld shutter speeds if you use mirror lock up, but obviously that doesn't work well unless it's a static shot.

I may be late, though here is a handheld shot taken with the 55mm at iso 51k. Only light in the bar was candles and this drink being made table-side.

I don't get it, why shoot at 1/4000 at such a high ISO? You could have shot at 1/500 and iso 6400, or 1/250 and iso 3200 and get much better quality.

With a slower shutter, I think the flames and sparks would look different.

True, you would have to wonder though if 1/2000 or 1/1000 would be just as good
