    for a concert you want something that opens wide... 70-200 2.8 is what i usually use...

    Depends on a lot of factors. Canon has several digital flash units. Read up on them and look for reviews to find out which fits your needs more. Friendly advise though - the EOS flash system is very mah fan. Google the EOS Flash bible. It contains all the technical answers you will need.

    Find ways to get good position, find ways to get permission to shoot (if necessary), use fast zoom or prime lenses and high ISO if flash is not allowed. Google 'How to take good concert photos'.

    Can anyone help ?
    All the best.
