I was just thinking about an upgrade to the 18-135 the other day. Perhaps in a year or so I will go that route. I apparently can still sell the 18-55 for $200-250, which is good because I bought it used anyway. I actually use the 55-200 more, and will probably end up using the 10-24 more than the 18-55 as well.

I have both 18-55 and 18-135 and use them interchangeably, depending on the situation. So I view these two lenses as complimentary - longer range (18-135) or slightly faster apertures (18-55).

When travelling abroad with Fuji gear I prefer to limit myself to taking only two lenses, the 10-24 and either the 18-55 or 18-135. So far I have not missed anything else other than perhaps faster apertures, but it's always the compromise of size/weight against fast glass.

Enjoy your new lens!

For now, I'll just carry the three (still less weight and bulk than my D750 and the 24-70, which makes the Fuji perfect for travel, which is partially why I got it).  At some point, I'll "upgrade" to the 18-135.
