I used the 180/2.8 at a high school play last night - a rousing performance of Grease. As you'd expect, the lighting was difficult, so I found myself shooting at high ISO and wide open all night. Here's how the d200-180/2.8 combo worked out.

I used the 85/1.4 for the wider shots. The d200, 180, and 85 were a potent trio for this project.

Question: Were high school kids this beautiful and talented when you were in school? Yikes!

It does a fair job producing jpegs at iso1250. There's some noise in the shadow areas, but if the subjects are adequately exposed, they're surprisingly clean.

I think these are excellent Frank. You did a great job under quite difficult conditions.

I also agree that the D200 handled this well; aided, of course, by your accurate exposure.
