VR Function, if you have money it's nice to have. The VR function will "help" to prevent camera shake. A monopod will also do that. A tripod will prevent camera shake.
Find a lens that you are interested in and call the shops to find out.
Or buy 2nd hand. (cheaper)

Sigma has a technical support at Bkt Merah. I went there once and they seems to be able to even do up to lens re-alignment level kind of repair. Got plenty of brochures also.
Just in case you are thinking of shoosing the Nikon;s 12-24mm and the Sigma one. If you plan to use this lens for film or a full frame DSLR (when Nikon finally releases one) then you only can get the Sigma one. It is a DG lens meaning it is suited for both film and digital bodies.
The Nikon;s version is strictly catered for the 1.5x crop factor of Nikon's DSLR. They should might as well market it as a 18mm - 36mm lens.
