Default Bigma at the CMA Musicfest

Hi all-
my wife and I went to The CMA Music Fest-in Nashville Tn The whole event runs 4 days and I took over 4500 pics
We were sitting on the field level and our section was about 3 feet higher than the middle section.So we could see over everyone-

last picture is at 50mm to show how far back we ,were it is fuzzy cause I Took it by accident.

All of the pictures are all stright out of the camera just resized

All of them were hand held 500mm f6.7 at ISO1250 1/100.

WOW I am more than pleased with the way this lens proformed .
.

Impressive pictures! Were you able to rest the lens on something, or did you hand-hold it the whole time? I can imagine you must have gotten lots of strange looks!

Thanks everybody I did get quite a lot of lookers and a few that ask to look thru it between acts .
Harriet - I could not use the railings as the whole platform was jumping up and down with the music
so I twisted to my right and would rest the bottom of the grip on my left shoulder and reach out all the way to the front edge of the hood.

We have pulled about 200 photos out we really love and I will try to post them somewhere and add a link.
My wife actually ask how much a 400mm 2.8 would be right up till I showed her the eekbay listings. :-)

You did real good. I've tried a few concerts with a shorter lens with not much luck. I can't even imagine trying to hold that steady in the midst of all the movement.

Amazing shooting for the lighting conditions. I haven't been brave enough to try anything remotely that difficult.
