This one's a bit better. I'm not that great at holding the camera steady enough for long shutter speeds

Cool.

Did you try calling them again? Would be nice to at least have a tracking number.
Now that they have your money, they're definitely not as motivated, I'm sure.

Yes, better. If it's a VR lens, hold shutter button halfway for a second before so VR can do its thing.
