K-30 + 18-135 high ISO pictures at the circus

Last week I decided to order the Pentax 18-135mm lens. Despite the mixed reviews I really wanted a versatile weather proof zoom lens.

Yesterday I visited a local circus with my 2 daughters and some friends. At first I was struggling with this rather slow lens at this very challenging lighting conditions. I decided mostly to go for TAV f/5.6 1/200 mode with a maximum ISO of 3200. The results were pleasing enough for me to show over here. All are JPEGS with some cropping and alignments:
