I've read snippets here and there that suggest the AF-S 24-70 ED VR Nikkor has problems with subjects close up. I own the lens and I can sort of see what the critics are talking about, but it could also just be the VR or my questionable technique.

Has anyone truly established that there's a problem at closer distances? And if so, is there a solution? Or do I just need to buy an even heavier tripod?

Absolutely not! That lens is amazing at all distances and at every focal length. I consider having my 24-70mm f/2.8E lens as mandatory no matter where I go.
