Low light performance costs $$$. If you have lots of money to spend, no problem. If you're on a budget, you might look at other options. The NEX cameras are great, but the lenses suck. Way too slow, especially for low light situations. That goes for all the Sony cameras - from NEX to A99. If you need a full DSLR system, the newer models might meet your needs. If you want to stick to 4/3, look at the Olympus OMD E-5 or the Fuji X100s. Both are good values for the money. You can always search by camera type on Flickr and see if you can find some high ISO/ low light photos from the cameras you're considering and see how they stack up. dpreview.com is also an excellent resource for researching cameras before you buy. Depending on where you live, you might also consider renting the camera before you buy. I'm lucky enough to live near a "borrowlenses.com" location where I regularly rent gear that I'm thinking about buying. Good luck.
