A faster lens won't give you higher ISO, but it will give you more options in lower light. However, to do that, you sacrifice depth of field which can be important for certain shots. Ultimately, a new body and a faster lens is even better, but given that it's 7 years after that model came out, I'd be going for a better body first.

comment not all images show when reading directly from SD card out of Nikon 5100
New card doesn't mean no fault in it. However, it could also be the card reader itself. Either way, having a look from Finder rather than Aperture is probably a good idea.

Any new model dSLR is going to have significant low-light performance improvements over the 350d. ISO 1600 isn't even really all that high an ISO these days.

Have you copied the images directly off the card to your hard drive and used Finder to see if they're all there and show a preview? It's possible that your card has a fault in it causing this.

comment How do I get even, bright light for photographing pages from books and magazines?
@Julia - You may want to rethink the too slow on the wand scanners... Have a look at: the-gadgeteer.com/2010/07/19/vupoint-magic-wand-scanner-review (I have to admit, this looks like a much, much, better answer than a camera).

Flash is a means to allow you to control the light. If you can apply fixed, continuous lighting, that's fine, but otherwise flash is going to be a way to provide a consistent light.

comment Can I use auto flash and auto ISO in Aperture priority mode on a Nikon DSLR?
@mattdm - Appears to be for the consumer dSLR cameras, but not for the cameras such as the D800.

Are you using the flash? Being too close to the page could result in an uneven lighting situation.

The linked question from MikeW doesn't help you? In what way?

comment Getting digital to look like film
What software options do you have for normal image processing? Is it just Canon DPP or do you have Lightroom or Aperture? I do, however, sense that this is a duplicate.

comment What ND filter to use for 5 second exposure hyper lapse in daylight?
He can stack them, however, to get to an ND14 potentially. Mind you, a strong color cast is very likely in that event.

Made the question a bit more generic around deciding on battery grips
