So, don't be a sheep.  The AF-ON technique CERTAINLY has advantages (i LOVE it on my D300, with a dedicated button in a MUCH better position), but use what works best for you, not what you THINK you should do.

Just to understand what you are saying ... If one uses this AF-On technic with the D7000, none of the VR lenses will actually have the VR on at the time of pressing the shutter?  If so, is there another way to activate VR whilst using this technic?

No, it all depends on the technique that you choose to use as well as the camera you're using. You can half press the shutter button in advance (initiating VR), before focusing with the AF-On button, and then press the shutter button the rest of the way after focusing. Some of Nikon's latest cameras initiate VR when the AF-On button is pressed and others, such as Nikon's 1-Series cameras always have VR engaged when VR lenses are used.

I see, thanks!
