Received my new 18-135 today

I got it on the eBay sale last week, for $400 USD.

I ran a quick test today against the Sigma 19 and the kit 18-55. I'm quite pleased - initial tests show that it pretty much matches the Sigma at equivalent apertures, and is always sharper than the 18-55 at all focal lengths and apertures. My original kit 16-50 was worse than the 18-55 kit, so this lens well exceeds that as well.

At 135 it does seem a bit worse than my 55-210 at the same focal length and apertures. So I'd say that under say 70mm it's quite good and still acceptably decent up in the higher FL ranges. It looks like a keeper!
