I got this lens recently and am very happy with some of my results but not all of them.

How can I tell if VR is actually working? Is there any audible or visible feedback if the lens is correcting for camera shake?

I have used it indoors for skating competitions and some of my shots aren't as sharp as I had hoped. I do understand that VR cannot correct for subject movement, just camera shake.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
