I don't know about Visual Studio ... but if you want to take a closer look at Git make sure the integration offers a nice way to work with the index.
SmartGit is worth the cost ... but not integrated with the IDE of course.

Most of the other tools/integrations I know are confusing and if you switch from a simple solution it is pretty dangerous to learn by doing (especially with those tools). There is quite a learning curve.
Maybe it offers easier branching ... but you need to figure out workflows that work for you.

Make sure you have enough time to get used to it - if possible appoint one person as the Git specialist who really looks into the ins and outs of Git.
Where I worked many people agreed that there needs to be a certain complexity to justify choosing Git over SVN and even CVS. It doesn't just make your life easier.
