18-135 is decent and weather sealed. Good choice. Also get at least one fast lens for low light and sharper pix. After awhile, you'll figure out what lenses will suit you best.

Thanks... now... 18-270 is 200 off plus another 100 if i buy it with body... plus bh has 6% off on whole order for first time google wallet customers checkout... so i can get k5iis with 18-270 , 35 2.4 and 50 1.8 for 1370 shipped. Its pretty great deal i think... just if i get these 3 lenses together now im saving 500 bucks plus 6%
Sadly 18-135 is not an discounted option atm , only 18-270 ... i loved my superzoom days though lol.
Im so nervous ...if i click one button on my phone im 1370 bucks lighter lol...decisions decisions

Though the 18-270 is more versatile than the 18-135, I went for the 18-135 after I found a link posted by someone comparing 18-55WR, 18-135WR and 18-270WR.  18-135WR was found to be better among the three but don't expect too much from it or try to compare with primes or more expensive DA* glasses though.  I also have a DA50mm f1.8 for portrait.

The #1 and #2 below are from 18-135 and the #3 is from 50f1.8.
