50mm 1.8 is still the wrong lens - it's not wide enough on an aps-c sensor.

I'm probably just going to keep it for a while it's just not the VR version which can be a pain in the butt sometimes.

You want to take action photos. That means you need to use fast shutter speeds. If you use fast shutter speeds with relatively short lenses, you don't need VR.

I know I was just trying something cool last night. No flash, long shutter, and we had a work light set up that lit up the subject.

From experience I've found you can't say cool and work lights in the same sentence!
