Canon say you get 2 stops @ 1:1, but don't believe it.
I've also had very good results handholding at 1:1, but not consistantly.
I know it says that but, on one occasion I knocked the VR switch into the off position and got blurred shots, was fine when I put it back on.
Here are two examples of Southern Hawker Dragonflies taken with the Nikon 105mm F2.8 VR macro plus 1.4 converter. VR was on and they were handheld.
