There's a parallel thread working with the discussion on the Nikkor VR lenses. I have a question that's a little more "practical experience". I wanted to know if anyone has used any VR lens for low-light/night shots. I've been thinking about this new "street zoom" 18-200mm VR that's due out soon. I was thinking that it might help my night shots by stablizing my camera's image... but, since I don't own any VR's, I'm wondering if it's worth investing in. I out shooting with some Canon friends of mine , they used their Canon IS lenses from the center span of a heavily travelled bridge that we were shooting from - the images came out pretty good, while mine had a noticable "bounce" to them -- from the heavy traffic passing behind us. I could feel it at my feet every time a large truck passed... and when I got home, it was evident in my pictures too. Would a VR have prevented that little "giggle" from showing up in my images? ...even at night in low light and long (10-30sec) exposures? Thanks for your comments!!
