What you are seeing the VR stabilization activating and engaging. Your technique should be let the VR remain on (except for those situations where it is not needed), half press the shutter release to engage the AE, AF and VR electronics, and after the VR has engaged then fully depress the shutter release.

This technique is covered in the instructions for the VR lenses along with other usage information:

"¦Notes on using vibration reduction mode
• Wait until the image in the viewfinder stops vibrating before fully depressing the shutter release button after you have lightly pressed the shutter release button.
• Due to the characteristics of the vibration reduction mechanism, the image in the viewfinder may become slightly blurred after releasing the shutter. This is not a malfunction.
• Do not turn the camera power OFF or remove the lens from the camera while the
vibration reduction mode is in operation. (Otherwise, the lens may emit a chattering noise if the camera is shaken. This is not a malfunction. Turn the camera power ON again to correct this.)"

Hi Brando,

Welcome to Nikonians!
RELAX!!!! Don't worry the VR mechinism is working normally. As George noted above, when you have VR On press the shutter release button half way and allow eneough time for the VR to settle before releasing the shutter.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

thanks for your replies. im just bothered because the whole image in the viewfinder move right after the shutter everytime the VR is turned ON. but when its turned off, it is steady. so my lens is good and no reason to return it for exchange. i really appreciate your immediate replies. this made me decide to stay in this forum. worth it!

i really hear a click sound like inside the lens is loose when the VR is ON when doing the half press of the shutter then releasing it. but when its VR OFF its not doing the same thing. is it doing the same as yours guys?

and also i tried my camera on tripod without moving. i compare the shot when the VR is ON and OFF. i focus it correctly. and the i noticed that there is a difference on the centering or alignment of the picture. when VR is on it makes the picture too high. is it normal? coz i got bothered with that "movement" which i can also feel the vibration like its loose.

That is how the VR system works.

The VR system moves a lens within the lens to keep the image centered and this movement is done by a motor with in the lens and the VR lens has limits for its movement.

When mounted on a tripod, you should have the VR "OFF", this is stated in the instructions for the lens.
