In my experience with the 105mm VR at 1:1 magnification, VR has no effect. It actually seems to make the image shake even more. That said, not all macro is shot at 1:1.

I have been using the 105 VR and occasionally the 70-300VR with 5T or 6T for years to get sharp 1:1, and slightly greater magnification images, hand held without flash that would otherwise be impossible without a tripod.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
