Speaking of the 18-135....stay tuned for the in-depth review on Pentax Forums. I'm adding the finishing touches right now and should hopefully be published within a week. 15 pages, Compared against the 18-55 and the Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4  "Contemporary," 100's of sample photos (the sharpness page alone has almost 200), and 30 RAW files to download.

It's a phenomenal lens for the price and especially because it's weather sealed.

Need affordable /weather sealing/ in a DSLR you can trust?

Think there aren't any opportunities to shoot in poor weather, and thus no benefits to weather sealing?
