    shot of the dog is not as sharp....but i can't ever get anything of her that is sharp unless i use flash. she never stays still and being pitch black does not seem to help the situation!

    Pets inside are hard without a flash because, as you said they don't sit still. So you need a faster ss thus giving up the dof needed. I am always trying to shoot the cats but as soon as they see the camera they are on the move. Perhaps try to get them closer to a window when a good light is coming in to help out.

    the cat is always happy to pose a little. the dog on the other hand has to come and greet the camera by licking the lens!

    Range of Pets

    I've had good results with the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 indoors without flash. Especially where there's natural light from a nearby window.

    But I definately agree that when they're on the move it's almost impossible to get a good shot without a flash. With my last dog, that was never a good thing because she freaked out with the flash.

    Cool shot of the cat, he looks like my departed little buddy! Im agree pets indoors are a challenge, I suggest getting them when they are sick and asleep! Or give them a nice bone to work on so they don't pay attention to you. And I know what you mean black dogs inside with a flash just isn't the best.
