Hi Tomm. SInce you are familiar with the 55-300mm, this comparison may interest you. The 55-300mm is a little better in the corners than the 18-135, but you will need to pixel peep at full resolution to see it, or print at an ungodly size. Click on the magifying glass, then zoom in:

Nice comparison shots! I have noticed the color of the 18-135 is much nicer! But you're right, no much difference in sharpness here.. Although in my previous post I was talking about the 55-300 compared with the 50-200.

Also, bokeh on the 18-135 is smoother than the 55-300 at the same focal lengths.

Very cool. Is that fog or pollution?

Hi! Thanks!

I think it's a combination of both clouds and pollution over Shanghai. Anyway it was a great sunny day and good photo opportunities!

Bought my K5 with 18-135 lens a few days ago. Played in my garden. I'm happy with it so far.

Another one. It's not a macro lens, but does an OK job.

I find the 18-135 to be indispensable for use as a walk-around lens, especially on vacations, where the focal range versatility is hard to beat.

Some shots with the 18-135, great lens if you ask me, though a bit slow

It's not really fall anymore but it's not really winter yet either. Some tweener shots. All taken with the 18-135 @ F 5.6

I like mine. I bought it because I didn't have a WR lens and figured this would be a useful FL range.
My favorite lenses are the DA Limited primes and owning this lens has not changed that. But for what it is it certainly isn't bad. I took it out in the pouring rain when I was visiting my parents in Michigan in fall and it performed well enough and better than any of my other lenses since I wouldn't take them out in the rain like that!
