Do any of you use this zoom lens with a K-01? If so, how fast does it focus? Any particular problems? Thinking about buying it, these images make me happy but I see that many of you have it attached to a K-5. I don't need WR so that's not a consideration or positive benefit right now (but could be in the future if/when I get a WR body...)

I happened upon this game and was standing outside the fence in center field (about 200 feet / 60 meters) from the subject. I did crop for the final image. K-30, 18-135WR handheld 1/250 at f/5.6, ISO 100

It turns out this zoom lens is a pretty good macro lens, too. This is an unaided macro (ie, no tubes or diopters) of a spiderwort with attached hoverfly. This isn't as close as I could get, but close enough that I wouldn't chase off the fly, which is as close as I needed to be. I was significantly impressed with this output.

I posted this in another thread too, at a soccer game:
Before the game a dove landed on a railing near us:



Some action at the other end, cropped of course:



When it started to rain, my wife said "aren't you worried about your camera?" and ran for cover. I told her not with this lens and tried to catch the rain:

My son has become obsessed with mountain biking lately (when not obsessing about skiing that is).
We have some pro riders in the neighborhood and they lent him these obstacles for practice in the yard. We have to drag him in to go to bed at night!

On a recent vacation I mostly used my 18-135. Thought I would share a few of those:

I just got back from a work trip that I got to do some shooting on and found the 18-135 very handy and versatile. I used that most of the time.

My sister turned my K5 around on me and my wife with the 18-135.
Not too bad, I kinda like the hard bokeh.

Great skies tonight. The 18-135 did pretty well!
