I'd agree that none of them are sharp... they all seem to exhibit motion softness.

I don't think *focus* was necessarily the issue in any of them - interestingly enough, the first one was the best photo, and it was 1/500 where the rest were 1/1000.

I agree. Usually if the problem is focus, then *something*, behind or in front of the subject, will be in focus, but the subjects (dogs or RC trucks) always seem to be at the sharpest depth in the photo (going by the ground details.)

Seems like 1/1000s should have been fast enough to freeze action so I'm left wondering what's wrong with these. Could it just be that the 55-210 struggles to keep up with 24Mpixels?

All you have to do is look at the OP's galleries to see, like the one i posted above. Not sure why you guys are ignoring this issue. This isn't motion blur or noise, the background is clearly in focus rather than the dog.
