Nice work as always, Des - love those clouds!

I've been wanting this lens for quite a while, and finally picked up a used one at a great price. Loving it so far. Here's a few shots from nearby Conejo Mountain Cemetery, using a K10D:

I am glad to see that you finally have an 18-135, Paul. You will be using it a lot, I predict. Mine is on my K-3 most of the time.

Those are very nice images from the cemetery.

It's amazing how cheap it can be found. A good value has become a great one. When I lost one in a blizzard a couple of years ago it wasn't a hard decision to just get another one.

A truer word never said. I managed to get mine lightly used for 130. A great price for the versatility it brings.

Many thanks Paul. Enjoy the lens. Matt's quite right about what great value it is, whether new or secondhand.

Dreaming of a way out...



by Alex Ramos, on Flickr

Shot with my K-70. I'm pleased with how the AF worked out here, considering the reflections on the store front window.

This is a good example of a photo that impresses even more when viewed at larger dimensions, I'm glad I went to Flickr to look at it.

I do miss this lens, 135mm is a nice FL on APSC. Really contemplating the K-70 just for this lens and the 55-300.

I'm thinking the same thing. I miss this lens after practically giving it away (my second copy) when I switched to full frame. Still have the 55-300 PLM, tempted to buy another APS-C just for these two lenses.

No need to buy a crop body - what about trying the 18-135 on the K-1 in crop mode? Should be like using it on a K-5 (with upgraded AF and metering and extra goodies like PixelShift).

I know I could, but I like it on the K-50. It feels like the small brother of the K-1ii. I should say my K-50 has a glitch taking me toward the K-70.

Works for BIF as well, provided the bird co-operates

Taken at 100mm 1/350 sec
