Try it in Live View with and without the VR. You could also be having some - not unheard of - AF issues too with either the lens or the camera.

In my own experience, Canon P&S cameras are maximized for sharpness right out of the camera and usually are fixed around an optimum high shutter speed and optimal sharpness f/stop of the lens. You may see a bit of a moire around the details in the Canon if you push the enlargement. Nikon takes a bit of PP work and/or raising the settings in the menu to maximize the sharpness.

Good advice.

Imo, I'm still not that sold on VR. I turned it off once on my 70-200mm f/2.8 and the thing shook like crazy on the tripod as it's supposed to be switched off on the tripod, but I wasn't expecting that! That's a huge mass moving around inside to do that by simply turning it off.

That should not happen. My copy has never reacted that way.
