Had both of them. Nikon 18-70 mm could not lived up to its fame. The humble "consumer" 18-135 blew out of the water the praised 18-70mm. In my opinion 18-70 was a deception. Nikon 18-135 is a much versatile lens and has an IQ at least on par with the 18-70mm

Yes, DxOMark gives the same score for both of them:

I still have 18-135mm (purchased with D80) and it is surprisingly sharp on D7000!
