C&C welcome. There were a ton of photogs in the pit. I managed to set up in front of Simon, so the majority of my shots are of him, till I pulled off to the side of the stage.

I also like #1 of the 2nd set. How do you like using the 50m f/1.2 for concerts? I've been thinking about getting one.

It was really an impulse to switch to it. I'd always heard the AF was slow in low light but I didn't run into it at Biffy. My 16-35 is a bit too wide for my tastes on the FF sensor 5d mk ii. I shot San Fermin (7 or 8 member band) at Brooklyn Steel on Saturday, that was my only use case for having the 16-35 and truth be told I was on the 70-200 the majority of the time. Picking up a 24-70 shortly to fill that gap in my lenses. Sorry for brevity and inconsistent thoughts, I'm typing this walking home.

Your comments are much appreciated. I have the 85m f/1.2 which is similar in the way it focuses but it's a bit long if I'm right up front in the pit. I'm finding the faster primes to be a lot of help in the smaller low light clubs and I'm getting a lot of assignments in these types of clubs lately so I'm going to need to load up on them.

From what I'd guess, a standard setup for concerts would be 24-70, 70-200. Throw in an optional super wide for those super wide stage shots.

I gave in and bought a 24-70 2.8 today. I'm blaming you for this. Haha. My next shoot is the 21st (The Afghan Whigs at The Apollo). I'm sure I'll post photos. Just planning on carrying the 24-70 and 70-200.

Yes I have these lenses and they are my go to lenses, I'd suggest also getting the 16-35m f/2.8 but I don't want to be accused of making you spend even more money! :-D

All the f/2.8's are great to have and are the minimum aperture for low light indoor performing arts but I'm trying to get faster lenses. Considering f/1.4 is 2 stops faster than f/2.8 that's 4 times more light which is a major difference when it counts.

I'm finding in the very small clubs that have really crappy light you either need to use a flash or some super fast lenses to get any good quality work done.

I have the 16-35 2.8 as well  :p

Yeah, I'd guess fast primes would be the route to go for ultra-low light. At least the larger (like 2k people - no madison square gardens, yet) venues i've shot so far have decent stage lighting, even if it's murder in post.

Yes I'm talking about the really small venues, like 100-300 people. They are the tough ones. There is one venue I shoot that can hold maybe 100 max but they have some pretty big names come there. They use 2 red LED box lights and a red light stringer that goes around the stage and that is it! Fortunately they usually let me use a flash (depending on the bands preference) and I've been able to get some good shots that way.

Looks like an intense show! Might have to check a show when it comes this way.

I know you were in a tight spot so nicely done!!
