Concerts with K30

Hi guys,

Anyone shooting concerts with the K30? I know that it's more than capable but would like to see some samples.

Thank you

John

That's weird indeed. I've shot some concerts with my K10D - wish I had the K-5 then!

Lao? oh you saw my Flickr nick?

I have the K5, however, I am more confident with autofocus with the K30. Most of my K5 shots at the Esplanade outdoor theatre was manual focus.
The photos I shared with my K30 is my first time taking at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre, it was all AF. I'm not sure if I'm lucky if the lighting was better that day?

Yeah when I'm in small clubs I generally opt for a tight perspective to obscure the smallness of the venue.
