Hands down, the best cost/performance concert photography system at this time is the Nikon D700. I have a few recent posts at ISO12,800 (+1 EV) which are simply stunning with no NR applied in post processing.

If its not too late I'd like to throw in a vote for the D3s for concerts. With the crazy uneven and unpredictable lighting at shows the D3s will consistantly give you the shots. For a budget I'd go with the D700 as others have mentioned. I love mine.
HI, Looking like a interesting thread going on. Its good that people are actually willing to share their views on this topic.
How about D3 guys?
Anyway, i used D200 taking quite a few rock concert, and then I made some comparison with the pictures taken by D700. A GREAT improvement!
