Rico Pfirstinger has a new sample set taken with the 18-135 on flickr, and his shots look MUCH better.

Thank you for the link. I'm looking to buy this lens to use with my X-E2 for travel.

I love the 55-200 and the 18-55 too on shoots on my own, but for travel (I just came back from Italy) it really is not practical, I ended up using only the 18-55mm (because changing on the fly becomes annoying to my companions but also I want to enjoy the scenery as much as shooting it.

Mireille,

Please don't have any concerns about the 18-135 - it is a superb lens. For travel I find it ideal.

I have the 55-200 & 18-55 as well, but the benefits of using a single zoom lens make the 18-135 an obvious choice.

Here are some pics taken in March in France, using my X-E2. Very happy indeed. No fussing about lens changes and the OIS is really excellent.

Hello Rich S

You have the 10-24mm, which I'm also considering for inside of churches shots and other. Do you find f4 restrictive in dark env, or is the OIS as good as they say and it is not a problem shooting in dark areas?
