I recently bought used but in visualy excelent contition AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 4-5.6G ED VR to use with D80.
I don't have much experience with VR lenses (except kit 18-55 VR - doing fine), but while shoting 55-200 with VR ON regulary get less sharp photos then same with VR OFF.

I've tried 55mm till 200 mm shots, exposing 1/60 till 1". Most of the time (not all the time 50-50) shots are fuzzy at pixell level even with tripod

Same motif at 55 mm kit lens VR ON is sharp(-er)! ...

My question is: Am I doing something wrong or VR is faulty in this lens?
