Reviewer Kurt Munger was not impressed. His review stated that the 18-135 was similar to the 18-250 in performance.

But you do get the SAM motor, which is quieter for video.

Thanks this is the type of info I am after. I started this post in a hurry. I have noticed the SONY 16-105 sell second hand for around $450AU & the new SONY 18-135 sells for around $550 with warranty.

I have the secret hand shack if I want to cover a longer range but to get a wider shot I only have the 18-55 SONY kit lens which is a versatile lens but when I compare the IQ to one of my minolta's it is flat and fuzzy & I find myself wanting a little more zoom.

Enjoy
