K5 & 18-135mm WR: Monochrome Discovery Park
Apr 3, 2011

Discovery Park is one of my favorite places in Seattle. I hope you enjoy the shot.

I recently bought the 18-135 lens, and I'm very happy with its quality. I actually bought two copies and sent the less sharp one back. I'm glad I got two copies, because the one I sent back was noticeably soft in the lower left corner, even at f/8. The copy I kept is awesome! Surprisingly, at the corners, when zoomed out to the widest end (18mm), it's actually sharper at f/8 than my DA15. The center, needless to say is razor sharp on both lenses.

Another fantastic lens by Pentax...one I wasn't expecting to be as good as it is, to tell y'all the truth. Believe me when I say, I'm a sticker for sharpness, and my copy of the 18-135 delivers. I really recommend this lens, but make sure you test it out once you get it.

Shoot in RAW because memory is cheap, but memories are priceless.
