So, do you see differences? The last one looks like the corner of the keyboard got focus -- did it come out OK? Wth long focal lengths, closeup shots will tend to have a bit in focus and a lot out of focus, so the key is to find the bit the camera focused on and judge from that.
With the other ones it's hard to tell because they were shot with wider focal lengths...what's your assessment?
Think there is a bit of a focus issue as I was focusing on the corner of the keyboard (highest contrast between white key and dark desk) and they all seem a bit soft and like the body is possibly front focusing a bit. AF did have a hard time finding the spot, granted this was with natural light from a slightly shuttered window at like 5:30pm.

That's subject movement causing the blur. Your shutter speeds are too slow to be shooting people. The backgrounds seems to be in better focus because it isn't moving and therefore isn't blurry.
Ok and that is what I thought, the body cannot do high enough ISO or go "wide" enough to bring in fast shutter speeds, hence why I was wondering if the flash would help out more than a straight replacement of the body or lenses.
So with that said it looks like the next investment will be a 580EX flash. Thanks for the help guys, really appreciate it. While I do not plan to do this professionally at any level or what not I do love taking photos, especially for family and friends, and would love to take this along with me on some of my mountain biking trips.
