    Alright, I bought the Nikon D40 last year and this year for xmas I got a new zoom lens. I have 10 days to give my new 18-135 lens a try. At first I wanted the 18-105 VR simply for the VR but the people at Ritz Camera said that it really doesn't make a big difference and I should go with the 18-135 without VR. I'd really like to be able to take pictures in low light more than having the extra range but does the VR really work that good? From I was told, it doesn't. Opinions? Suggestions? The D40 was my first DSLR camera so i'm really new to the whole thing. Before that, I always used my little Sony point and shoot. And by the way, i'm not interested in the 18-200. It's too much money for right now and too big.

    I'd go for the 18-105 VR. It does help a lot imo if it's being handheld. I always have it on.

    A stop makes a huge difference from my little experience.
