Ah yes. I find it is always best to carry a tripod, even if you don't intend to use it. Best to have something and not need it than the other way around. How is the 645 with high ISOs? Not the most common camera, so no real reports of any shortfalls it has...
It's very good at dealing with high ISO, although you will always notice it when pixel peeping at 100%.
This is one taken at ISO 1600 with a manual 80 - 160 lens at 160 mm and at maximum aperture at a gig in Sweden
