Can you recommend a good review site?
Be sure to check our user reviews and in-depth reviews, as we've got every lens covered.

The 18-135 is a great lens. Certainly not a piece of professional equipment, but its versatile and very handy.

why wouldn't you give some trust to the reviews here on this forum? Having read many opinions at least, instead of one.
As for the 13-135, pz guy had only one early version to test which unfortunately wasn't good copy.
I can confirm that my 18-135 performs just excellent. 90% of time this lens is on my camera.
Here is an example of photo taken at 135mm wide open (1/1000 f5.6 hand held)

this one is 1/400 f/9 24mm

Try one.
The reason I like photozone is because it has a comprehensive list of tested lenses and a summary that is easy to get a a quick yeah or neigh on. They also sometimes give a "highly recommended" seal of approval. I usually see if there is also a dpreview test too. I guess I also have the impression that pentaxforum might be a little biased in their reviews - maybe a wrong impression.

Thanks. I'll give them a better read.
