Nikkor 18 - 200 mm VR lens test

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The lens was attached to a Nikon D80 SLR.

The reason why I did this test:
"VR II system offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed 4 stops faster"

Results:
At full 18mm wide angle (27mm equiv.) - I can shoot as slow as 1/2 sec comfortably.
This is about 3 stops slower than rule of thumb (1/27th sec).
1 sec is just too slow!

At full 200mm telephoto (300mm equiv.) - I can shoot as slow as 1/5 sec comfortably.
This is about 5 stops slower than rule of thumb (1/300th sec)
1/2 sec is more "hit and miss", so I won't risk it!
