Hi Daniel,
I assume these were with your new DA* 200mm? It did quite well for you, even nearly wide open, all the pics are sharp, especially with the apparently low available light. I noticed that you were consistently at f/3.2, do you find that aperture to be a sweet spot for this lens?

Thanks. F2.8 to F4.5 are the spots of the lens with great bokeh. As usual and particularly for low light concert shots, there has always been a fight for more light. The last 2 I was using flash almost 20 ft away. I did not do too well in portraying the atmosphere which was simply electric. Keeper rate is low because of erratic and ever changing white balance on stage.
