I love your Blue Merle!! I didn't crop or use my Noiseware program on any of the photos posted. So, I experimented with just the jumping one and got this:

Not sure whether to get the new lens or play more with the 2.8 on the *istDL. I'm sure I could find a good use for the 1.4 no matter what....

Thanks again to everyone for all the good ideas!

So, I bought the 1.4 lens from the guy on Craigs List and put it to the test last Saturday in Flyball class. I have no regrets! Here are a few pictures for critique.

These look much better! You're doing wonders with the *ist DL. If you're still looking to upgrade to the K20D, I'd heartily recommend it. The AF is much better and the high ISO (lack of noise) is about the same or slightly better, plus you get more resolution, which can be handy for cropping.

Glad the 50/1.4 is working well for you.
