Is VR to be switched off at lower shutter speeds < 1/60 ? I use D7000
Sep 28, 2012

I just went through some reviews of Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC lens that has been launched about 3 -4 months back and in most of them it has been recommended that for speeds higher than 1/60 turn the VC off and for lower speeds use it. It makes a lot of sense in terms of when you require it but it seems at higher shutter speeds VC deteriorates the picture quality.

I have a Nikkor 16-85 3.5-5.6 DX with VR and another 70-300 4-5.6 FX with VR. So my question is whether the same rule is applicable to these lenses also or for that matter to any stabilized lenses ?
