Neither, I suggest 16-50mm f2.8 or may be cz 16-80.  for telephoto I use the beercan Minolta 70-210 f4.

When you buy lens go for quality. One good lens is better than many bad ones. both the lenses are good but think there are better setups than the 18-135 but it all depends on your uses.

for me I rarely go above 50mm so I don't benefit much from 18-135. I benefit more from good lens in wide angle to 50mm range.

So what will you use the most or photograph the most? Then find the best or a really good lens for that purpose. Don't buy lens for the sake of them. I did once and it's fun lol but it's expensive.
