So...instead of letting the camera decide in P mode....I should do a little thinking of my own? Ha! Just kidding I understand! I will try tonight when I shoot this band...any tips if I were just going to use these two lenses?
it all depends on the movement of your subject...but i'd try and get a decently fast shutter...1/125, or 1/250 would probably work for a lot of things, as long as they're not too quick...i think 1/250 you'd be fine for a lot...to get there will all depend on the light available...i'd set the lens to f2.8...ISO @400...see where your shutter is at...if you're at like 1/30 or something crazy, you'll need to do some steps to get it higher...raise the ISO to 800 gives you 1/60...stop the lens down to f2 will give you 1/125...you'll have to adjust on the spot, but i'd use AV mode, and start at my suggestion, and see what you need to do to get an acceptable shutter speed...i'd try and mess around with them before seeing the band though

Go to Av mode, set to f3.2 to f3.5 (or f2.8 ), ISO 200 or 400, set EC to +1/3 and try those types of shots again.
that'd work for the train...but wouldn't really help the others...
