It's a good point Brian. But I wish you'd seen the motions that were involved. This was an illustration of the term "snapshot." In any case, there's no question that the VR in this lens is better than its predecessors.
By the way, you seem to feel that the D800 forum is for talk about bodies only. Evidently the combination of the body (useless by itself) with lenses and other paraphernalia that allow the body to do something worthwhile is off limits.
