For concert photography I have been favoring my Sony 50mm 1.4 lens quite heavily. It’s a fantastic piece of glass and the results speak for themselves. Last night I decided to break with the 50mm and work with my Tamron AF 28-75mm f2.8 XR Di while attending the Wayne Hancock show at Fitzgeralds.

As you can see, the Tamron did fine in terms of clarity and exposure. On top of that I was able to capitalize on the wider angle when framing up my shot.

I was still interested in close up work and the Tamron did not disappoint there, either:

But the true joy of this lens is the ability to shoot at a wider angle and from a greater distance so I am not having to crowd the stage…

I am definitely going to experiment with this lens some more in the coming weeks.
