Similiar to the hockey ones I am trying to get good quality pictures of figure skating. Just about a year ago I purchased a nikon D5000 since from the research I did it seemed this was the best camera in my price range at higher iso. I purchased with a 55-200 VR lens and I think I am about max at 1000 iso and I think it is noise on the pictures above that. Just wondering if I am on the right track or not. I know i should have a f2.8 lens but just can't see spending that much since they are about $2000 for the af-s. I have a bunch of them on my skydrive at the link below.
