    Hi all. I have my "first" assignment with my new gear......I will be
    shooting some pictures at an upcoming jazz festival and I was
    wondering if my current setup will do it justice?

    I have:
    - Rebel Ti
    - Speedlite 420EX
    - 25-90mm (canon)
    - 80-300mm (sigma)
    - tripod if needed

    Should I pickup another lens with a low F-stop for this? I believe my
    25mm will go down to F4, but I have to be fairly close to fill the
    frame. I'm just worried that my shots will be too dark.

    The 420EX should do the trick. Use at least 400 speed film and you should
    be fine. You should test it in similar conditions first though. Perhaps a
    nearby county fair with tents? A beer tent? :)

    Will you be shooting at night?

    In daylight...?

    Is the stage lit?

    What are trying to end up with, color prints, slides, scans for a website,
    black and white?

    What's the final usage going to be?

    What are the event rules regarding using flash during a performance?

    Way too little information to give you correct answers.
