Re: Then why have an ON - OFF switch?

Then I ask you also - Why have the Nikon designers included an ON-OFF switch on every VR lens made, if it serves no purpose?

Did they just put it there for fun so that they could sit back and have a laugh at people posting on DP Review about its function?

As you seem to have intimate knowledge of the operation of the Nikon VR mechanism, can you advise us all of the main causes of VR failures and what we need to do to prevent such failures?  I certainly do not want to have the expense of another repair.

I never paid any attention to turning the VR off before and I got a failure.  So any advice given to me by a well established and reputable repairer (not Nikon) that has the potential to prevent a future failure is good advice and I will try my best to follow the advice given.

If you believe that advice is worthless then that is your opinion.
