    following images are taken at ISO100, f/5.6 at 200mm with different shutter speed.......how do they compare with each other in terms of hand shake (blurness)?

    they are all handheld with no adjustment (photo size resize all photos which i wasnt aware of....will upload again tonight to another webspace)

    original image with shutter at 1/200

    To tell you the truth, they don't look much different to me. I might argue that the 1/200 shot is slightly sharper than the 1/15 shot, but not really noticable. I'm not sure if your test subject really does the comparison any justice.

    the actual test is not for comparison....is just to test the VR function on my lense....to see if it will allow me to do handheld shots at 1/15 with focal length at 200mm.....assuming that 1/200 is close to as best as i can get....if 1/15 produces a similar (almost exact) result....then i guess the VR is doing a very nice job

    but of course.....when i shoot something that is in motion....i would need different shutter speed to freeze the motion as desired....but the purpose of my current test is to check the capability of the VR function...and it seems great

    In my experience with the lens, 2 stops is about what you get. Anything under 1/60 at 200mm will have some motion blur. Perhaps not a lot, but some. No way to tell from low res JPEG's on the internet. You need to study your RAW files. You will see what I mean.

    I agree... it's a good idea to test your equipment so you learn it's capabilities but you'd need the RAW image at 100% view to really see the differences.

    they are not low resolution....they are crops from the original at 100% JPG....i thought i was pretty clear on the title of each picture?...i'll try to shoot again tonight at 200mm with the VR off....and then i guess the difference will be more apparent.....i've tried before shooting 200mm at 1/15....without VR...you see "ghost image" or "shadow"....very obvious....but i'll post it tonight when i get home

    edit:....i guess i see what you mean by low resolution now....somehow the site resize all photos for me.....i guess i'll upload them to other spaces for better reference
