I've long questioned if IS should be turned on when using fast shutter speeds. In my experience it doesn't seem to make any difference to the image so I just leave it on at all times other than on a tripod.

using VR is jumpy sometime when i shoot a few shots one after another.
yes the viewfinder actually goes weird for a sec and make a loud pop noise.... well i just keep my finger on the shutter pressed half way so the VR doesn't go off? i kinda find that work best for me
