Re: Thanks (nt)

(Sigh)...for me, this is the Achille's heel of trying to communicate precisely within the confines of a text forum.

Yes, you are correct...and I pan and use VR all the time. Had we been having a normal conversation, I would have told you how I was actually "spinning around quickly and pressed the shutter as the bird was ´╗┐only momentarily ´╗┐caught in the field of view".

It wasn't a normal 'pan' at all.

What I had hoped to express was that my gyrations in grabbing that shot were far beyond what 'normal' VR is intended to compensate for.
