comment Upgrading EOS 350D or changing to full frame for low-light improvement?
Julian, basically I was in a similar position: I was trying to get better low-light performance from my 550D (not that much different to the 350D in terms of that). I ended up getting the 6D and kept my primes (Sigma 30/1.4, Canon 50/1.4, 85/1.8) and added a Canon 135/2.0. Now I am actually struggling not with low-light performance (the 6D is AMAZING at that), but image composition since the FF does change things a bit.

What I also learned about autofocus: more contrast = better

Well, actually even the AF beam is disturbing. Not as much as a flash, but enough :(

Is there no way to create an automatic setting from the camera's JPG settings?

Good idea – have to try that. But I would like to have as little disturbance to the dancers as possible…

used "shallow Depth of Field" since it's the correct term
