peevee1: "We weren't able to save any images, but from a very quick test Nikon's claims of a 5-stop vibration reduction don't seem entirely unreasonable. At 200mm, hand-held, we were able to get consistently sharp results from shutter speeds at least as low as 1/15 sec,"

Well, this is not even 4 stops, is it? Where are 5 stops here?

Barney, 1 stop down from 1/250sec is 1/125sec, 2 stops 1/62sec, 3 stops 1/31sec and 4 stops 1/15sec. So peevee1 is correct, 1/250sec (or 1/200sec, rounding off) to 1/15sec is 4 stops down, not 5 stops.
