    Point im trying to say is that 18-200mm can suit most situation... but there will be exceptional times tt u realli need a F2.8 lens
    70-200mm VR liao!

    I guess Tamron 17-50mm or 28-75mm F2.8 would be a good choice?? Then sit closer to the stage....
    depends on your shooting style and event. even with the 28-75mm in a huge event, there might not be enough reach

    i find it more convenient with a tele zoom lens for events as your subject might be moving around, whilst you are planted at a spot.

    It certainly sounds like u dun need a flash now.

    More like u'll need flash photography lessons instead.

    Everyone starts somewhere. In dis case, he's even asking about a simple function of the bounce card and what's it for. Thus I gave him his 'somewhere' to 'start off' - Flash Photography lessons.
