    Some concert stages are really brightly-lit, and some have a much more "grunge" feel to them, with dim colored lights and so on.
    Hard to generalize "concert photography".
    Exploring! :)

    Agree... but have to expect worse case scenario at times... at least you go prepared. It's not like the concert details will say: "we be using big bright lights, so no need to bring fast lens..."

    Of course the best preparation for a worst case scenario is a D700/D3/s... but lets get out of the D7K context...

    Really depends on what kind of lighting used and how much access you get.

    If not too bright and far away, i am do tempted to say 300/2.8.

    If you want to save some money, you can try to buy from the buy and sell section of the forum. With your budget you should be able to get a D90 with a 17-50mm (or 18-105mm)+ 55-200vr + flash + 50mm, f1.8 + Tripod + bag +dry cell. You might have some to spare for photo development.

    Cheers

    haha, I tried using my LX3 (even in extreme darkness who cannot notice a DSLR!!) but was caught after 2 shots (without flash) and was asked to surrender my SD card......use old uncle trick lo... pretend to be puzzled.... like sotong... They let me off on condition that I don't shoot anymore.
