When in doubt, what effort does it take to turn it off? I never use SR unless I specifically need it.

What benefit do you think you are getting by turning it off ?

In theory if the camera isn't moving the SR doesn't move the sensor. So there is no harm to it being on for a long exposure on tripod.

If the exposure is very brief now far the SR mechanism moves the sensor makes not difference.

If you turn SR off the risk is that you find you needed it after the shot is taken.

+1 accept on the long exposure there is the chance for drift in the gyros making it correct when there is nothing to correct
