I'm probably 10-15 feet away, never in front of the audience, though sometimes from the side. With the D5100 I was using a shutter of 1/200-1/320 or higher (some performers get very active) and an aperture of around 2.8. I was not getting sharp shots and I was trying to increase my chances. As it turned out, the camera was back-focusing.

I would guess these settings would be the ones to use for the 650D too, if I can get away with a wider aperture or a slower shutter speed to lower the iso, so much the better.

40 f2.8 pancake - manual mode, f2.8, auto iso, ss depending on motion
