Fujinon 18-135/3.5-5.6 looks disappointing
4 months ago

There was a review published in photography blog, and the sample images look quite disappointing. I was hoping the lens would be close to 55-200/3.5-4.8 in image quality, but it doesn't look that way. It's not only soft, the contrast is low due to strong aberrations, which look worse than 16-50 and 18-55 zooms. The Sony 18-135/3.5-5.6 I used before looked definitely better and only at half the price. I doubt there will be many people willing to pay a premium price for a mediocre lens.
