But...$500 represents a significant investment for me, are there any alternative at this price range that's comparable to Sony's offering? How does it compare to say the Sigma 18-300 with adapter? Is the IQ on the 18-135 really that good?

Here is a comparison with the same (or similar) lenses offered by other companies.  The Sony 18-135 is pretty much in line with what everyone else has in terms of price, and arguably a little better than most in terms of compactness.
