    My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

    Nikon D850:
    I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
    nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
    For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
    Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
    A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
    nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
    Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
