Brian is quite correct. I use my D3200 with many lenses and have never had a focus issue. I always make sure my focus point is on my target. I also always use a fast enough shutter speed to prevent blur even with VR on.

Here are two photos taken with the D3200 and the AFS 70-300mm VR. The first photo is a crop where the tree is about 400 feet away. Shot at ISO 800 1/1000s with +1.3 EV exposure compensation to account for the bright sky. Lens at 300mm f5.6.



The second photo was an experiment. It is very hard to get any detail from this flower because of the bright white against the dark background. So it is a crop taken about 10 feet away using exposure compensation of -1.3 EV to bring out the detail. The AFS 70-300mm was set to 135mm f4.8.



Neither photo has a focus issue.
