Re: Nikon 18-70 vs Nikon 18-135

18-70 - was a decent all-around lens on my D70s.   Not great, not too many flaws.

18-135 - one of the sharpest zooms Nikon made, at the expense of a lot of other optical issues.  CA was quite apparent.  Some distortion as well.   Worked well on 10mp cameras, but not sure how it does on the modern stuff.

Both needed VR.    The 18-135 was clearly sharper, but...
