D90, VR, and lens rattle
 
The manual for the Nikon D90 says not to turn the camera off or remove
the lens while VR is in effect... the result being that the lens may
rattle when shaken. Really need to always turn off VR before turning the
camera off? Any danger of lens damage if you don't?

all that means is don't remove the lens while it's actively
stabilizing, which is not something anyone is likely to do.

stabilization will park itself moments after you take your finger off
the shutter button, at which point you can remove the lens without
issue, whether or not the camera is still on and whether or not the vr
switch is on.

Makes sense. Thanks.

Not sure about that but retracting a telephoto lens by pushing it in
from the front (instead of turning the ring), can strip the gears and
ruin the lens. Been there.
