All images are impressive!  Your handle name does justice to the combo for sure.  Thanks for sharing!

The last crop from the other image - I was not able to keep the combo in absolute parallel to the object, even f11.0 giving me less than 2mm of DOF. Especially hand held.  F16.0 is visibly destroying image due to diffraction.  VR and AF were absolutely necessary, I can't imagine how to keep the combo steady without ones.   Thank you for your attention!  LZ

Impressive close-up qualities from this obviously versatile zoom lens. Well done examples.

As to keeping the lens steady, there are efficient solutions apart from VR ... No potential optical downsides  either: tripod and good head. For a lens such as this, a fluid head probably is optimal.

.  Correct!  But my goal is to show what to do in case of emergency, even with acceptation of some lowering of its phenomenal resolution. Thank you! LZ

LZ, it was actually dry here last nigh  ;) .  I really like that last image as an Abstract.  The Hamilton watch images are really great examples of the versatility of the lens.
