    It helps.

    No, you don't need it - but you don't 'need' anything. It's handy and worth the money.

    I believe Nikon has been making glass for 50+ yrs. Only w/in last 5-6 have they been making VR (not entirely sure on exact numbers but I hope you got the idea).
    Is VR useful - depends on who you ask. Personally, on VS lens, I turned the feature of - I don't like inner lens movement when I recompose the shot. On my non VR lens, I don't have VR :) and it is my favorite lens.
    Shooting at something like 1/30sec or slower, VRE is helpful but again it depends on what you're shooting, how important that feature to you and of course your budget.
