Here's a few from a snowy walk I took with my K5 and 18-135. It was still coming down pretty good, so WR was the way to go.

Thanks. Would have been easier if the title matches the official product name.

My second photo ever with the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] DC WR

The whites blew out but I wasn't really looking for this photo. I was waiting for a Red Winged Blackbird when I noticed this bee. I am really loving this lens so far. The speed of the focus system was a pleasant surprise. I'll post some more once I see that this works. It is my first attempt to post a photo on here.

mtux, those close focus shots are incredibly sharp. Was there much PP on these?

Mtux,

# 1 and # 2 are exceptional photographs.

I have an 18-135 and I feel that this lens has got a bad rap by some. When you see the quality of photography you do, with this lens....makes me think perhaps the people that complain about the lens, should perhaps think that maybe it's not the 18-135, but their skill that's wanting..

Excellent photography, Mtux.

Thanks, well I don't think so, because my PP ability wasn't as good as today, those days.
maybe some contrast and clarity added to the whole shots.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Well, to be honest, after some months of using this lens, I felt like it's not a good lens. and was looking for better glasses, but later when I had better glasses and compared them, I found that this is a great lens for what it is! and now I like it so much.
and It's really sharp in the center! right from f/5.6, specially in close focusing. and that's great I think for a lens with this range and features.


For the second shot, I captured more than 20 shots! to get one which the dragonfly is in focus. while I set the focus on nearest place and moving forward/backward to get it in focus.

I was standing in the middle of a river! and nothing like a WR kit will help you there
DA18-135 + on camera flash, it doesn't make a good lighting, but there wasn't any better option.
