This perhaps should by posted in the "Lenses Forum" but I think it's of real interest to D800 users in general since we almost all use some VR lenses.

Below is a link to a Nikon Imaging release (last updated Oct. 17, 2013) stating that beginning July 1, 2013,CIPA has introduced a 'standard' for measuring Image Stabilization performance for digital cameras. This is apparently to make all image stabilization somewhat easier to compare across lenses and manufacturers.

Here is the link where Nikon has published the number of effective stops gained by VR in each of their FX and DX lenses.

I had never seen the actual stops gained by Nikon VR, by lens, before... so I thought I would share it with others who may also be interested.
