Hi, thanks, Maxxuman.
Do you mean the CZ16-80 or the CZ135 as slowish (in terms of AF speed?)
I did a few concert shots with the CZ16-80 and even though it's only 3.4 wide open it worked pretty well, both in terms of AF speed and sharpness.
The CZ135 works really well under those conditions, the drum kit was shot with it.
regards,
Bernd

Here's a few from last weekend. I screwed up and had my SSS off so they didn't come out as good as I wanted!I'm starting to think I suck at this whole concert thing

I meant the 16-80, in terms of the relatively slow aperture range (which can have an effect on AF speed, but that wasn't what I meant). I must admit I generally prefer zooms for concert shots, since you normally can't move around enough to vary the framing when the need arises.

Maxxuman, I disagree. I find framing just as easy with a prime as with a zoom. I use a 50 and a 135 almost exclusively. I usually stand on either side of the stage and change positions every 5-10 minutes. If I'm too close, I don't shoot, and wait till I cross over to the other side to shoot that musician I was too close to. Then again, standing really close gets you the best shots.



For shooting the drummer, I have the unique ability to go back stage (there's a venue where I have permission for that) and stand really close.



Drummers are always very hard to catch, but even from the audience, I sometimes get very good shots.

135Z: Thanks but I'm afraid that's pretty much my entire library of old black and white concert pictures. Like I said, I was young and had many other things on my mind in those days. If only we could turn back the calendar, eh?

I don't get to do a lot of this kind of work but enjoy what I do. Nearly all my recent stuff has been a local outdoor venue where they put up very minimal lighting which tends to make for some dramatic but harsh shadows from the heavy side lighting. Nor do I have great gear for it as my only lens with any reach is a 70-210/4 (Beercan) but until I sell a body part I won't be picking up a 70-200/2.8 which would help a bit.

A concert photo, of sorts. I suppose he thinks he's giving a concert but hasn't attracted much of an audience.

Wow, that second one is great Kiklop!

It seems the 80-200 HS performs well on FF!
