Please allow me to ask a question. I've been shooting some dance events in dark environment using FF Nikon camera with f2.8 zoom lenses. When shooting wide open at f2.8, I occasionally got some blurred images due to the DOF. If I were to use f1.8 or f1.4 prime lenses, isn't it more difficult to get sharp images? How should I prevent it?
Maybe this article would help abit.

Though focal ranges are likely to be different, comparing f1.8 to f3.5 and f5.6, you're 2 stops ahead at the wider end and 3+ stops at the longer end. That's a lot.
The Sigma 18-35/1.8 basically claws back the entire FF advantage when compared to f2.8 zooms on FX but you have to live with less focal length range and the extra size/bulk.
The 50 f1.4 is pretty affordable. If you do not mind using f1.8 both 50 f1.8 and 35mm f1.8 afs is super affordable provided this is the focus length you would like to work with.
Monopod or tripod will also get you there even using a slow lens...
Of course if it is a loud thumping place there might be some issue...
