vr is blurring my photos!

just bought a new 105mm vr and as I was testing the lens

I found out shots with vr on are uniformly blurry

at around 1/80s ~ 1/125 shutter speed.

With vr off I sometimes get sharp but mostly blurry images with my d800 (as it should be)

but for some reason, with vr on, images are consistently fuzzy, never as sharp as the lucky

shots I get with vr off.

I have tested this many times. funny thing is,

1. With vr on, I get sharper images at 1/8  than at 1/80

2. problem magically goes away when mounted on tripod

here are samples(100% crop) of the best shots I got with/without vr. These were taken about

7 feet away. I shot long/macro distance - both the same result.

what gives??

Vr off

Vr on
