ON except on a tripod

Using a high-definition sensor (D800) I often set the shutter speed to at least 3x the focal length when hand-holding without a tripod or VR in order to minimise camera shake. With VR I find I can lower this to 2x ar least.

My f2.8 constant zooms don't have VR. I often find I choose a lesser lens with VR rather than a big f2.8 zoom because I can safely use a smaller aperture with the VR lens and get more depth of field. Plus the lesser lens is usually smaller and lighter
