The dogma in photography abour SR is you should not use SR in 3 situation.

1-High speed (500-1000 and up) (unnecessary)
2-When on tripod, (SR looks for an unexisting shake, and keeps buzzing (sometimes you can hear))
3-Macro shots (sensor/lens dont move longitudinally (sagittally) but bugs&wind created movements causes blur in extremely shallow DOF )

Quite right. There are other scenarios where I turn it off:

1) Zooming manual zooms in daylight. There, I try to keep with high shutter speeds anyway. Yes, I can calculate the optimal FL to tell the SR'bot, but it's still incorrect, especially towards the range extremes.
2) SR is generally redundant with flash, too.
3) When I'm stoned and decide to explore impressionistic blurs.

SR is not required at high shutter speeds. Even if the system is switched on, SR is unlikely to work at a high shutter speed - surely we can credit the engineers for having thought of this issue?

Having two Sigma lenses where the OS is better than SR, so yes I turn it off when I use those lenses. On a tripod I use the timer and on the K-r the SR switches off when you use the timer.
