    you get to the place you want to be, get all set up, take a few shots at a few different setting, get your shoot ready take a few shoots pretty sure you have a pin sharp shot you want , get home put card into laptop to download images, thumb nails all looking good and feeling pretty happy with myself , only to open images up to find there all a bit fuzzy at the edges .
    subject water fall into river flowing round some rocks , lighting nice and broken through trees catching a few mossy rocks , 0.5 0.8 1second. 1.5 and 2 second exposer times ,
    ,all confused as how it could happen camera was on a tripod rock solid on a 2 second self timer so i knew there was no camera shake , then it hit me ......

    I alway's tape over the VR switches on my Nikon lenses, I find it easier to move a piece of tape if needed then to be catching them as they in an easy place to move as you hold the lens.

    I may be wrong on this, but I thought it was better to off VR when using a tripod or never press the shutter all the way down straight away as you have to let the VR system settle down before taking the shot.

    Quite so while also throws up a poor design feature.
    As stated tape over it or super glue it to off Wink

    It begs the question that perhaps modern cameras are a little too complicated

    This is not a problem with my Canon IS lenses. When using a tripod, movement is clearly zero or almost so and the sensor in the IS system deactivates IS. It is still probably a good idea to switch it off but I usually forget but fortunately it does not matter for my two IS lenses. Are you sure that this is not true for Nikon VR lenses and the problems actually due to something else?
