High magnifications handheld are difficult. Especially the longer focal lengths. There is rarely enough light, and when there is it is mostly harsh. One should not expect too much from VR around 1:1, although it does stabilize the viewfinder. Using key flash (difussed) tends to be easier for handheld; at longish macro working distances, one should not use flash at max power otherwise the pulse may not be short enough to prevent movement blur.
