"VR lens"



Hi,

Is the new 18-135 lens VR?

To this end, is there much difference using a VR lens?
If you were buying a new camera, would you buy body-only and opt for a VR?

Thanks,
im333

No it's not.

VR makes a big difference as it makes it easier to shoot at slow shutter speeds.

If you have all the lenses you need purchase the body only. If you need VR, purchase the lens.

No, it's not a VR lens.
