It looks like all the new lenses have that fameous VR inscription meaning that they include Vibration Reduction technology to help consumers snap sharper photos than ever before, even while shooting handheld.

The focal length of this lens (the standard 18-55 mm, 3x zoom) makes me think that from now on, all the cameras in 2008 will come with this lens in the kit instead of the old 18-55mm lens for basic kits. AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens will be available starting from December 2007 at a price of approx. $200.
