    Cool write up. Thanks for sharing
    Really like the BW version of the first picture. Good job!

    Never shot a concert myself but this made me want to look into :)

    Thanks for sharing.

    I shot a concert last September in very hard lighting just with a Pentax K50/1.4 and I know how hard it can be.

    One of my keepers of that night:

    I managed to get up to stand where the sound technicians where for a few minutes.

    They rapidly expeled me :D

    Turned out pretty nice. So, I am assuming you used a burst mode to get that many photos? That's what I usually use because performers move around and change expressions so much.
    Check out this thread for more concert photography: :smile:

    I stay away from burst mode. It quadruples the images to wade through when picking winners and losers.

    So true... I kicked my myself after having to go through so many... but owell its part of the experience right? The touch focus was awesome.. but i did notice the refresh of the touch on the ep3 was not very quick.. might be a setting i need to adjust.. the shutter was manhandled when the lead got close... and didn't want to miss a shot.
