Pentax DA 18-135mm WR Review Posted
In-depth review and comparison vs Sigma 17-70 "C" and DA 18-55
By Heie in Review Announcements on Aug 21, 2014
Today we are proud to present our in-depth review of Pentax's weather sealed all-in-one zoom, the smc DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] DC WR!
Among several hundred sample photos for you to peruse through, there is a section of 30 images with their RAW files waiting for you to download and play with on your own.
Additionally, we made sure not to just focus on solely the DA 18-135. Because this zoom is often included as part of a bundled camera+lens kit, we wanted to see how it compared to the more conventional kit lens, the DA 18-55. Along with Pentax's shorter kit lens, we added the Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 "Contemporary," a highly acclaimed lens for Pentax cameras, to see how the DA 18-135 fares against the higher-end competition as well.
Don't just skip right to the conclusion (you know who you are) - 15 pages of detailed analysis await!
