Having had this lens for sometime now and used mainly on a tripod( no VR)I find that hand held with VR on anything below 10ft the VR is as good as useless.I can hear the VR working but it's not a patch on my other lenses.I know Nikon state that VR degrades as you get closer, but 10ft.The lens is not a year old yet so your input would be very welcome as to whether or not I send this lens back to Nikon for a check up.
