You're welcome Brian.
As for candid shots from a relatively long distance in that scenario...... a 70-200mm F/2.8 VR or VRII. Even then, if the light is insufficient, you'll struggle to get the shutter speed up to avoid subject motion blur. The flash might also be ineffective at longer distances too, depending on your vantage point and in all probability you'll end up with hard shadows behind your subjects.
Low light documentary photography without a flash gun means, pro glass and a camera body that can handle the noise at higher ISO's. All of which comes with a heft price tag. I'm looking to upgrade from the D90 to the D7000 at some point, because of its low light capabilities. I would like to eventually go full frame with either a D700 or D3X (or their replacements) but, until those lotto numbers come up, I'll just have to keep dreaming and saving lol.
