Re: I wonder why the 24-70 f/2.8 has no VR

I don't know so much about the latest version of Nikon VR, but on a shorter length I have become suspicious that with stabilisation turned on, I don't see the ultimate in sharpness, by which I mean the kind of sharpness I can achieve by a high shutter speed or tripod, even when the image looks like it was taken steadily. And the stabilisation isn't guaranteed to be consistent between shots. I have yet to properly test this. So while I'm sure there are people in the world who would like to bracket handheld landscape shots at 1/8s in the hope of getting a good one, I suppose VR is more for telephotos.
