Great shots.
As I’m reading Thom Hogens book, he recommends to turn VR OFF above 1/500. Because the at those speeds the VR can’t keep up with the shutter. Unless you’re shooting from a moving platform like a helicopter, then you should use sport and not the regular VR

Turn off VR at high shutter if in normal mode on a DSLR. But on the DSLR, if you have a lens like the 500PF that has a sport mode, you can leave that on at any shutter speed. I have never turned off my VR, leaning it in sport at all times no matter the shutter speed and get razor sharp images.

The sport mode is meant for planning and situations like shooting while riding in a truck as if on a safari.

The Z9 is the same experience. Leave it on sport and forget it
