On my Sigma 150mm Macro HSM APO stabilized lens, I need to disable the VR (Sigma calls it OS) otherwise I end up getting blurry images. I notice that when I hand hold and am extremely still, the VR function in the lens sometimes causes the lens to move when I am not moving, resulting in a blurry photo versus disabling the function.

Perhaps the VR feature works when you have shaky hands, but it can be counter productive for folks who do have good hand holding technique to start with.
