Re: Do you miss VR on the 85mm f/1.8 G ?

I can see that your experiences are different from mine. When my kids are occupied with something (drawing, talking on the phone, brushing teeth), I can definitely shoot at 1/60. Sometimes I've gone to 1/30 or so just to try to eek out a little better ISO. You might be right that Nikon will not ever make a VR version of the 85.

I hope you're wrong because there are some really great portraits or other shots I could imagine myself getting with low ISO, low shutter speed, VR, and no flash.

Sure when they're running around or doing gymastics, I will go to a much faster shutter speed, and sometimes begrudgingly a flash (which is sometimes not allowed or at least not always convenient and definitely bulky).
