Very nice. You must have had really good seats.

I always enjoy your pictures. And, as the owner of 3 yellow labs, I like your choice of avatar, too! It's hard to beat a picture of a yellow lab puppy :-)

Rick,

Nice shots. It seems that for a small theatre concert, 50mm1.4 or 1.7 are the best combo with either K100D or K10D with SR.I did something very similar. I tried 135mm as I do nothave anything in between but to no avail.

I really enjoy using both my 1.4 and 1.7. It would be nice to have "something" in the 135mm range that was faster than 2.8. I was in the second row of the venue, but it is not easy to secure such good seats for every concert that I attend.

these are great. i'm sure you learned a lot from shooting them. i've always loved available light shots. it puts a whole different dimension to the shots..

The best I can do with longer lens FA135mm but with iso 1600 and 1/45s still with my DL with no SR. Image unprocessed and resized only. One of the rare shot with enough light for F6.7 which is needed for obtaining the deeper DoF for two subjects . If I used 3.5 I would have oneofffocus. I do sacrifice on noise though.

Daniel
p.s. I cannot trade off my FA135 even with the badly needed cash dangling before me

At 1/45 you have to take ten to get one. This one is a hit!

Kjell,

Thanks. I did not have SR and I rested my arms on the back of the seat in front. As usual tripod or mono was out of question. They stop you before you can get in. Even with SR in my K100D, I would still try to brace myself for some support if available.

(only resized; no cropping and no pp)

Wow! Wonderful concert pictures - having had absolutely NO success at things like this, I'm impressed.
