I turn it off 98.765% of the time.

So in what shooting situations do you use VR?

In theory, hand held situations where I cannot use 1/(2 x fl.) and cannot use a tripod, cannot use flash, and the lens has VR. That narrows it to the 105mm f/2.8 Micro, or the 70-200mm f/2.8 VRI. Since (according to Thom) Nikon says to turn VR off for macro use, that limits even further.

Haven't had occasion to use VR since buying the D800E a year ago. I think I might have used it once with a D700, but I'm not sure.
