"RE: 500mmVR Focus/Clarity Issues or not??? advice/opinions please!?"
Hi Pete,A couple of things.1. Nikon's super telephoto lenses are at their sharpest close to wide open. I would probably use this lens between f4 and f8.2. When using VR allow a second or two after focusing to allow the VR elements to settle down. 3. Nail the exposure. Under exposure just brings up the noise and masks the resolution.4. 100% crops are not a good idea. A good TC will give you much better results if you can keep the speed up.Keep working at it. That's a fantastic lens. Len
