I'm also working on understanding VR.    With a D800, I see pretty small differences in sharpness, and so far most of the time I've used VR I've seen a degradation in sharpness.   At all shutter speeds.   Not all, but most shots.

What I'm wondering (on the AF-S 80-400 specifically) is if the VR is doing it's job, but when the VR element is moved off center there is just a loss of sharpness.   Or it could be that I'm just moving the lens too much for VR to completely compensate.

i know we're off topic, but i haven't found a common denominator yet. sometimes it works beautifully, at other times i get better results with it left off. more experimentation is required to isolate this issue. i'll share whatever i find out. good luck.
