18-135mm WR on K-X?

I'm thinking about getting the new 18-135mm WR to replace my K-X kit lens before I upgrade to the K-5 (to complete the WR setup). The only thing I'm confused about is whether it will be fully compatible. Will I have any compatibility issues?

Sorry for such a newbie question, I just couldn't find a definitive answer anywhere, which I need before I put down that much money. Thanks!

Oh, also, does it come with a lens hood?

Further to the original post, I would be interested (and I am not probably alone) how does the balance of the K-x with the 18-135mm WR feel ?

I tried the K-x with the DA18-250mm and I felt that the camera was not as well balanced as the K-7 with DA18-250mm. The DA18-250mm seemed to heavy compared with the K-x and the overal hand-feel ws degraded.

Thank you for the input....
