I'm curious how this lens compares in the 18-135 range with the DA18-135.

I've had both. The 18-135 is significantly better IMO. Edge/corner resolution is pretty similar but the 18-135 has better centre resolution and I much prefer the colours and overall rendering.

But that is not to disparage the Tamron 18-250mm, which is good for what it is - as a one-lens option for travel and general use. From about 24-50mm its resolution is particularly good, especially when stopped down.
32mm


47mm


Even at the long end, where resolution is weakest, it can still give some nice images. Here's one at 250mm (with a K-30):


Good luck with the sale @Dronegeek. Someone should snap this up at this giveaway price.
