Re: Equipment Suggestions for a Beginner whose Target is to Shoot Rock Concerts

Hard to say the exact equipment that those photos were taken with, however, we can see a couple things

- Extreme wide angle photos and normal focal angle photos likely indicates more than one lens.

- The dark atmosphere of concerts, and the need to adjust focal length quickly would indicate pro-level F2.8 zooms

In most cases, you're looking for a good full frame camera of pro or prosumer rating. I'm familiar with Nikon, so you're looking at a Nikon D5/DS850/D780 in the DSLR range, and the Nikon Z7II in the mirrorless range.

In most cases you're looking for a set of F2.8 range pro zoom lenses. The typical 'trinity' set includes a 14-24mm, a 24-70mm, and a 70-200mm. For a typical shoot like you're taking you'd likely just be using the first two, and rarely the 3rd.
