18-135 owners - comparison to 18-55 kit lens?

Hi:

I am really interested in the 18–135. Presently I have the 18 - 55, which I’ve actually always been pretty happy with. For a longer reach, I supplemented that with the 55-210, which actually got very little use and I recently sold because I didn’t like the image quality and it didn’t make it worth switching out the lenses when outdoors, etc. So the 18–135 seems like an ideal replacement for both.

However, as noted, and I may be in the minority, but I’ve always been pretty happy with the 18 - 55. Can any owners who have the 18–135 and experience with the 18- 55 give any insight on whether of the image quality of the new lens in the 18 to 55 range is better, worse, or about the same then the kit lens?

Thanks in advance,

Mike
