Its mind blowing to think people are unable to take good photographs with the available lens's be it DX or FX.

Just my take



Bruce, I agree with you. People spend so much time worrying about some feature like VR and not thinking about this as a superb tool the way it is. So you might want a tripod. You'll probably do better with one anyway.

When you think about VR, when is it useful?

  1. The subject must be static.
  2. The shutter speed must be slow and without recourse. Light is challenging and you have no way to increase shutter speed to compensate.
  3. You don't have a better support system with you.

Most of the tme, you have better solutions available or you have subject motion where VR doesn't help.

Just a thought.
