According to photozone.de the 18-135 is one of the worst zoom lenses of Pentax! The sample they tested was actually so bad that they sended it back to Pentax- Germany to ask if it was defective. The reply from Pentax ( after testin the sample) was that the lens was whithin factory specifications!!!

A terrible tragedy. Pentax Germany should have replaced the lens because it was surely defective. Try listening to actual users, you will hear a different story. A properly functioning DA 18-135 outperforms the DA 18-135mm throughout their common range.

Here's a report that compares the DA 18-135 to similar lenses from Canon and Sony. The Pentax scored below the new Canon and above the Sony and previous Canon:


Aside from the Pentax Forums In-Depth review, check these reviews:
