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.
as a complete novice i was proper happy i may have a good photo too, but alas not that time. its a learning curve
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.
It could also be mirror vibration!!!!!

Quite so while also throws up a poor design feature.
As stated tape over it or super glue it to off
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?
mines a tamron lens , and only reason i think its that , is cause i read it in the reviews before i bought it .
