First pics I share!

I love to shoot in corcerts... Without pass, it's not always easy but it's a good exercise to learn to master new lens! Here are example with Samyang 85mm

f3.2 for the first
f2.2 for the second
The last three were f3.5 or f4
And I set Auto-ISO to 1600 max so the noise can easily be handeled by the K-5 (I think noise reduction is great until 1600). I then add a little DxO Filmpack treatement for a more "film grain" looking

Nice Work!

Very good job shooting in those low-light conditions. I think you captured the mood of the show well, and the lens does seem to be sharp. I do musical concerts myself, it's quite demanding and different from other types of photography. Keep up the good work!

The first shot is fantastic. I have the same lens and just shot our xmas cards with it. Good lens.

I almost always use this lens when people ask me to do photos for a party or other event. It's one of my very favorites.
