My experience is that most newbies intuit that a big lens must be a good thing. This might explain some of CaSoNikon's sales. So swapping a 17-50mm f/4 might work if it's a significantly bigger piece of glass. That said, how has the 18-135mm been selling as a kit?

The 18-135 is a quite expensive kit lens. I bought it with my K-3, and I love it. Got it mich cheaper as a kit lens than alone. But ... it might be too expensive for many users.
