in matrix or center-weighted metering you would definitely have underexposed the girls, but with spot metering you should be ok. I know a lot of concert photographers only shoot in manual, but in my experience, shooting in aperture priority with spot metering, and occasionally changing EV, gives me shots that are every bit as good.

But that's the thing.

The dSLRs have a variety of exposure modes. That's what makes it a versatile tool!

If one person wants to use it on manual most of the time, its the right tool.

If someone else always wants to use it on A-priority, its the right tool.

If someone wants to use it full auto everything, its the right tool.

A lot better than when Nikon tried to create a cheaper SLR by cutting out the manual modes like the Nikon EM or . . . Pentax with the original Pentax ME. Those were cameras that were only good tools for people that never wanted to use manual exposure.

Flash I almost never use, so I can't comment on the adequacy of automatic modes for that.
