As a pro stage performer, I'm really enjoying your shots and the behind the scenes information you are sharing. Thanks!

Besides the new 50mm Summilux - which other lenses did you use for this 'gig'?

Did you shoot it mainly with the m11 or the SL2s?

Thanks Tobias. I had the SL2s as the primary camera with the SL 24-90. That is what captured most of the shots and even some key video shots. The M11 was more for a few creative and detail shots.

Thanks! The SL2s makes perfectly sense for that task and also a Zoom lens. Since you changed your positions a lot it worked perfectly. When I receive photos from photographers from my shows - most of the ones who only uses Zoom lenses and never use prime lenses.... they often stay to much at the same spot and think Zooming gives them enough variety. It's not easy to get got shots for performers that only talk (Comedians, Speaker...) and don't have different backdrops like a play or a musical. In short - I liked your shots and I've worked with many photographers and I'm not very often happy with stage pics of mine - often it is a disappointment.
