Should you turn off VR when using a tripod?

Should VR be on or off?

VR should usually be off for shutter speeds over 1/500. It should be off if you’re on a stable tripod even if the VR system says it is tripod aware. Basically, VR should be off unless you can guarantee that without it, you’ll get camera motion in your shots.

Do I need to turn off image stabilization when using a tripod?

Image Stabilization is a great feature and is in my opinion well worth paying the extra dollars for – especially if you shoot a lot of lower light shots.

Is a VR lens worth it?

Yes. It works and it works great when it is needed. Typically you will only find VR or image stabilization as an available option on zoom or macro models. The reason why is simply most fixed focal length prime lenses has a wide enough aperture (1.8, 1.4, 1.2), that VR or image stabilization wouldn’t be needed.

What is the difference between VR and DX lens?

DX lenses produce an image circle that will not cover the full FX frame. This allows them to be made smaller and less expensively for a particular focal length and maximum aperture.

In most cases, image stabilization will give you the same image quality at 3 to 4 shutter speed stops slower than usual.

Which is better Tamron or Sigma?

The results for both the Tamron and Sigma models are very similar, with the Sigma only very slightly better than the Tamron over the entire focal range.
