Halloween Props waiting for trick or treaters:
The more I use this lens, the more I love it.

I use several Pentax lenses with my K5IIs (used to have a Kx), including primes such as the DA 15 mm f4 (the previous one, w/ the better starburst effect IMO) and i'm about to buy the 77mm f1.8.
I travel with all of them, but on day trips, there's nothing like the 18-135mm WR zoom -- b/c of the great range and the weather-resistance. The ability to shoot in essentially all conditions with a truly weather-resistant superb dSLR and this excellent lens is something that has often had other photographers of other persuasions very envious !
The photos others have posted here demonstrate the excellent IQ of this lens. The only rap that I've (rarely) read about (here) but not experienced in 4 years with the 18-135mm lens has been the question of corner softness. Minor cropping addresses this.
I'm very happy with this as my walkabout lens - would buy it again w/out hesitation.

Yes, I have to agree. A few weeks ago I got back from a mission trip to India and I took the 18-138mm along with some primes. Used one prime once, the rest of the time it was the 18-135mm because it was so versatile. I was in rapidly changing conditions and just not practical to be changing lens on the go. It was a mission trip so photography was not the primary purpose. I would have liked a faster lens at times to isolate the subject, or in some of the poorly lit buildings we visited. Also, it was the rainy season, but it never rained on us. Just 90 plus degrees (F) and matching humidity.

This first one is me with my 13 yoa body guard, translator and guide. We were staying in a rural area and she would walk with me when I went on self guided walks around the area.








This last one was taken with the DA 15mm F4 lens.
