Re: D800 with 24-70mm and VR question.

Enjoyed Thom's article, which must have been written BEFORE D800/600 because both these bodies DO activate VR with AF-ON (or AEL-AFL programmed to be AF-On on the D600).

Shot some whooping cranes at considerable distance with 1/2000 and 1/1000 and noticed what seems to be motion blur with VR on, so I will try turning it off when 1/500 + shutter speeds and compare to when VR on in future. I could also be seeing heat in the air near the ground, though it was November (about 60*F).
