So I just got my new (slightly used) 70-200 F2.8 VRII. Reading the pdf instructions online page 19 last line states:

"With auto focus cameras featuring an AF-ON button, vibration reduction does not function when the AF-ON button is pressed."
I set my AE/L AF/L button to focus, so I focus with it. Does this mean that VR is not working when i do this? Does this apply to all Nikon VR lenses?

If so I'll go back to using the standard method of using the shutter release button to focus and trip the shutter but I sure do like using the AE/L-AF/L button to focus.
