In Ron Reznick review on the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 AFS/VR-G the fowling statement was presented in his review. VR is activated by half-pressing the shutter button. Normal VR will detect panning motion and only correct for movement in the direction perpendicular to the panning motion. Active VR will detect and correct for motion in any direction, such as on a moving car or boat, and should not be used for panning. VR should be used in conjunction with a tripod only if the head is free, as it will actually yield poorer results otherwise as the VR lens group will induce some motion on it’s own. The last line on when to use the VR ( with a tripod) is it right it should only be used if the head is free ( camera mount)??? What is the right way to use the VR? And is there any place to go and read the instructions on the 70 to 200 vr and newer reviews. Thank you very much for the help.
