Speed to switch VC off is 1/40s. So if using the auto minimum shutter speed function on the D800/E & D4 auto should be set to -1 notch (actually -2 notches works fine).

If the required technique is to turn off VC at faster than 1/60s....I really can't see buying this lens when a VR lens is an option. Blurring due to VC faster than 1/60s is not a's a failure in design and completely unacceptable, IMO.

You are so right. This stuff is supposed to help you, not make your life harder. I understand VC is not going to be helpful above a certain shutter speed but it shouldn't introduce more blur than if you had it off.
