I sold my Canon 5D MKII and switched to the K5 for the smaller size of the camera and the weather sealing. I shoot concerts, sometimes outside concerts and wanted a smaller lighter Bag-O-Gear for concert work. Below are some samples of what I have done with the K5 at concerts.
Wonderful colour in all of these shots. In fact, most of the work in this thread is spectacular.

Some from today with the K-5 IIs and the 50-135 (mostly)
A nice way to get killed wearing no shoes playing a guitar and sticking your face on a microphone.

Especially when your playing an ungrounded AC30? Been there done that, jumped 100ft in the air

Foals playing at the Zenith in Paris, back in November.

Pentax K-5 + Tamron 28-75


Pentax K-5 + Tamron 70-200 (of course, just as I switch to a longer focal length, the guy decides to jump into the crowd).








Pentax K-5 + DA 18-55 WR (gasp! a real, fast wide angle is next on my wishlist, I swear)






A second body would definitely have come in handy.
While I didn't lose a massive amount of time switching lenses in general, the one moment when I should have had a wider lens on my camera I had unfortunately just put on my longest lens instead — switching back again at that time would indeed have made me miss what was happening as a whole (singer went crowdsurfing hell fast). I sorta managed by moving back a whole lot, but the pit was so overcrowded, it was a less than ideal shooting position.

Some awesome shots nonetheless. I particularly like the first shot of this 18-55 set. Really well composed and great colours.

Hi all, some nice pictures over there!
I used the K100D, KX and then K5 for a while and I was pretty happy with these cameras. Lightweight and very good technical capabilities. I used mainly Sigma 105 EX DC Macro, Sigma 17-50 EX DC Macro and Pentax F-50 lenses.
Still, I have been shooting mainly on a D600 since 2 years. The main reason is that I need a big viewfinder as I started shooting concerts all manual including AF (ok, wanted to check as well if FF really makes a difference )
To stay on topic, here are some concert pictures that I shot with the K5.
Enjoy! Your feedback is appreciated

I like these very much, great atmosphere.

Here are a few photos I took on my first attempt at concert photography:

Photos were taken with my K5 + the 18-55 WR, FA 50mm F1.7 and D-FA 100mm f2.8 macro WR. I loved the experience and will definitely try to start shooting more music related stuff!
