    It was dark, didnt want to use a flash.

    50mm 1.8
    ISO 1600 f1.8-2.2 with a 1/20-1/80sec exp. :sad2:
    I might need to invest in the 50mm 1.4 :o

    After seeing the pics and knowing how stage lighting can be, the pictures look fine.

    Don't be concerned with the noise, as it's not distracting or very apparent.

    When applying that noise reduction afterwards, you may like the removal of noise, but noise reduction will also remove detail. To compare, just shrink down the image to final viewing size and compare the two images. Often, the original image will look better.

    Another option for your situation would be to get closer and use a wider lens -- That way you can further reduce shutter speeds and pick up additional light.

    wider like the kit lens or do you mean faster lens like the 1.4?

    Wider as in focal length.

    There's a lot of options:

    35mm f/2.0
    28mm f/1.4 -- expensive, but amazing, especially on film
    etc..

    You can definitely try shooting with the kit lens @ 18mm and speeds ~ 1/15th of a second, maybe longer.

    The pictures would be even more blurry. The kit lens is 3.5~4.x

    The wider the focal length, the less sensitive it is to hand shake...

    The kit lens will open up to a maximum aperture of f/3.5 at 18mm.

    I use some actions made by fred miranda www.fredmiranda.com for my 10D and 1D MK II.

    I only bought the 10D one but it works well on my 1D MK II files as well.
