These are great recomdations if you are a situation where you need a high percentage of keepers. If you are in a situation it doesn't matter focus on proper technic and move the shutter speed around and choose for yourself at at what speed you can hold with differant lens and percentage of keepers you get. Then you get it right when it matters.
Personally I can still get a acceptable percentage of keeps around 1 x F.L or a little less. if I have the perfect situation for proper technic. If I don't have room to get my feet right or I can't get my elbow in or I'm cold, etc. shutter speeds have to come up fast.
I found vr1 to be about 2 stops and vr2 to be 3 stops. One less than nikon says. A lot depends on how much that one shot counts for me on the shutter speed.
Street shooting with a 16-35 vr at a 10th of a sec your probably going to loose more shoots to subjects moving than you are with the vr off do to camera shake.
Sharpness and output size are directly related also. A little bur at 100 percent on your screen may not make a deferance depending on your output. I'm sure you figured that out with film, buts its important to remember the native sive is pretty big on a 800. You will down sample almost ever shoot you tAke.
