Are Nikon VR lenses worth it?
According to Nikon, VR or image stabilization can provide 4 stops slower speed than a lens without it and still yield a tack sharp photo. In most cases, Nikon is correct.

Is 18mm wide angle?
Generally, 18mm is considered wide-angle, but it depends on the size of the sensor. A DSLR camera with an 18mm lens WOULD take wide-angle shots, but if you have a compact digital camera or a cameraphone, where the sensor can be really tiny, an 18mm lens would look more like a 50mm lens or longer does on a DSLR.
What is the best size for a wide-angle lens?
The most popular wide angle zoom range is 16-35mm. Most kit or standard zoom lenses go down to 24mm or 28mm. The widest lenses on the market are 10mm (rectilinear) and 8mm (fisheye).
When should you turn VR off?
When you are shooting with a tripod and remote release (landscapes for example), you should turn off the lens VR and IS settings to achieve sharper images. Otherwise, when your camera goes looking for a vibration and doesn’t find one, it will continue to look for one, which can cause a slightly shaky result.
Does VR affect image quality?
VR doesn’t reduce the image sharpness, it just reduces the effect of very high shutter speeds. An image with VR at 1/500s will have the same sharpness as an image at 1/4000s with VR, but an image at 1/4000s without VR will be sharper (slightly, and the shutter speeds are just exampes).
Is it worth getting a wide-angle lens?
Third, wide-angle lenses give a greater depth-of-field than telephoto lenses. In addition to using high aperture values, a wide-angle will ensure that the whole landscape is in sharp focus. These are three of the most important reasons why a wide-angle lens is well worth the cost for landscape photographers.
