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!!! I dont own the lens but I would be very sceptical buying one cosidering also the fact that it isn't cheap either!! The best all around zoom lens from Pentax seems to be the 17-70 f4! If it had weather sealing it would be perfect.

I own the lens.  I wasn't all that happy with it and then figured out it was de-centered.  I sent it to CRIS with a couple of test images and they sent it back very quickly.  It looks excellent now and seems like a whole new lens (it's not, just adjusted).
