Thanks for showing these very nice pictures.

However, others should not think that they represent the capabilities of that combination. The one with pine cones is quite blurred. I would have used a shutter speed much faster, because even if you with the VR were perfect, trees are always moving enough to give a several pixel blur on such a high density sensor. Also, f11 is narrow enough to cause some diffraction blurring.

With this wonderful sensor, you can shoot at iso 800 or even 3200 with very little loss of quality.

Yes, we have to remember to break the habit of using the lowest ISO. There's truth in what you say, no doubt, and the same could be said for any lens on a D800. Improvements can always be had when you're willing invest the time in technique, but even for casual photography techniques this lens should bring good results--that's the point of VR. It's a good purchase.
