Aren't you the guy who's always complaining that your Nikon equipment is screwed up and you had to take it in for repair?

My suggestion is to try to remember to turn the camera off before changing lenses, as it minimizes the potential for a problem, whether it is dust, screwing up the VR or some other electrical glitch. Keep in mind that your DSLR is an electrical device, not a mechanical/optical one.

Forgetting occasionally probably won't kill the camera, but why purposefully do take the chance. As you can tell from reading this thread, most people feel that turning it off is the right thing to do.
