Shoot us some images using the 18-135 - indoors, outdoors, at 18mm, at 135, whatever.

Make sure that at least one of the shots is focussed using liveview or manual focus, is on a tripod, and has image stabilisation turned off. And do not crop the photos, just resize them.

Plus make sure all AF adjustments are disabled, and all JPG settings are to full size and maximum quality, and all in-camera image adjustments are set to factory standard.

Is OP trolling us?

The posted photos bear almost no relationship to each other.

Actually, it is pretty sharp. I expected it to be a bit soft, especially at the edges, but the one I recently got is very decent. Match it with a good RAW convertor like DxO or LR, and it performs great.

Naturally there may be sample variation.

In cases like the OP's, in the absence of sample pix, I'd first assume a problem of technique, rather than hardware. Then I'd ask if he is using any UV filters on his lens :)
