I always had the idea that VR should always be OFF unless stricltly necessary, like when shooting in vibration environments. I found a great article

I infer from such article that even with handheld, unless standing on a vibrating surface, VR should be OFF.

What's your feedback on this?

One thing to keep in mind as well is that sometimes VR can give you unwanted artifacts in your image. For instance, particularly if you have some fairly out-of-focus objects such as trees, bushes, or even buildings in your picture, VR-on can at least on some lenses give you some nasty looking bokeh due to shifting of the out-of-focus objects. Due to this, I try to keep VR off unless I think I need it due to low shutter speeds.
