Not to seem presumptuous, but you might also have some camera movement and might need to work on your technique. VR is not a cure all. Try S mode @ 1/125 or faster and see if this helps. VR also takes about 1/2 second or so to kick in. Half depress the shutter and wait for image to stabilize in viewfinder, then depress shutter button to activate. Think 'slow squeeze' on the shutter button. VR will not help if you're not waiting for it to engage, and it won't help if you're poking or jabbing at the shutter button.
