Had both of them. Nikon 18-70 mm could not lived up to its fame. The humble "consumer" 18-135 blew out of the water the praised 18-70mm. In my opinion 18-70 was a deception. Nikon 18-135 is a much versatile lens and has an IQ at least on par with the 18-70mm

Yes, DxOMark gives the same score for both of them:

I still have 18-135mm (purchased with D80) and it is surprisingly sharp on D7000!

Why would you want to look out how copies of the lens, other than the ones you own, perform? Surely in this unigue situation the answer has to come from the copies you have on hand
