Gig photography is great. Just getting into it. Have had to use flash occasionally when the lighting is poor...

Fabulous pics man! That 85mm prime lens?

Proper gigs don't seem to allow flash - but the lighting is so much better you don't need to. Mind you the band spend most of the time being dazzled by the flash from the other cameras in the audience.

These are all with the 70-200 2.8, but the chap I was next to was using a 28-300 Sigma which is quite a few stops slower - which surprised me.

Yeah at the gig I was at, the left hand side of the stage was so poorly lit I had to use flash a couple of times. It is a semi professional venue of indy bands so they do not mind.

The 28-300 is not an EX lens so you do not get as good quality or as fast glass. It's basically similar to my 70-300, I did consider it (it's about £200). I decided on my 70-300 as it shares the same filter size as the rest of my lens collection.

But boy that new lens is sharp and sweet. Nice purchase. **jealous**

Last night I swapped between the 70-200, the 85 and the 18-50 over the course of the set as they didn't care about having more than 3 songs. The best results are with the 85 of course... can't beat a nice prime. I'll upload some ~at some point~.
