Jon - Thanks for making my point: The 24-70/2.8 has no VR. I also took a similar picture with a Zeiss 35/2, also no VR, which dropped the iso to 1000 but was not wide enough to catch the reflection. By the way - all shots I took were critically sharp. Doing this picture with an f/4 lens and good IQ would have been more difficult. This is the very reason why Nikon only equips its slower lenses with VR.
