70-200 f4 VR problem

Hi, all.

Less than a month ago I bought a brand new D500 and a 70-200 f4 VR. I was not getting sharp photos until I disabled VR. Is this a know issue or did I get a lemon?

I reset to factory settings, and did a quick shoot.

The bluring is consistent when I shoot with VR ON, even on a tripod.

Handheld VR ON 1/200s @200mm

Handheld VR OFF 1/200s @200mm

Tripod VR ON 1/200s @200mm

Tripod VR OFF 1/200s @200mm

I used my Pentax K-5II with the 50-135mm f/2.8 as a control (checking if my steadiness is Ok).

Handheld Shake Reduction SR ON 1/200s @135mm

Handheld SR OFF 1/200s @135mm

I also have a D750 and a 24-120mm which is an awesome combo and VR is perfect.

The problem is that I'm from Mexico, so I need to see how waranties work over here.

Any input is welcom.
