Can you put up some photos up with the EXIF data. Off what was read, it sounds like it could be the small aperture creating a longer shutter speed than your used to, which would show motion blur or...

The 50mm F1.8 uses a step focus motor and is not considered the best in accuracy. Also, since your other lens work fine, then it would most likely be that lens.

Yeah, your going to find out that the body is one of the cheapest aspects of photography, and you will always want more lens for quite some time.

The photos of the skier and the football player are very well done, but the same shots could have been done by an S5IS. The depth of field looks more like a point and shoot instead of a DSLR. I think...

Nope, the teleconverters, with Canon cameras, stop AF once it goes beyond F5.6. Which means that the one stop loss due to the teleconverter will make your lens go beyond F5.6.

They brought out the 50D because of the pressure from Nikon. I don't think that the D60 is putting any pressure on Canon for a lower priced entry level DSLR.
