I don't really mind how dark or light he's going to be. I like both the light and dark sables, so either way it's all good.
In regards to ears, I wouldn't be worried about it yet. My last boy's ears didn't stick up until he was 12 weeks old. I am amazed that this litter of pups have gone up so early.
Oh try 4 months lol my still dont go up yet. better be save than sorry but thats if only you care about the ear to go up. I also know some people in this forum with their GSD puppy whose ear never go up.
