I've some pretty decent luck with this using cameras that do a decent 800-3200. (In my case that means the 5DII and the Fujifilm X-E1).

The first two (in an earlier post in this discussion thread: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1245604/1#11846926) were both shot handheld with the 5D2. The first was at ISO 3200 using the 24-70 II. The second was shot at ISO 1600 using the 70-200mm f/4.

The one attached to this message was shot handheld using the Fujifilm X-E1 at ISO 6400 with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, in conditions so dark that most people weren't even aware I was making photographs... and those who were aware thought that my flash was malfunctioning. ;-)

(Thanks to JColwell for the gentle reminder that I had already posted the first two earlier in this thread. :-)
