My copy of the 18-135 was absolute crap. My copy of the 16-70 is really good. I didn't pursue a second copy of the 18-135. If you think you have a keeper, then keep it.

If you think you have a crapper, than crap it. (Yours was probably defective).

Oh, and, don't let other people tell you how you should or should not test a lens.

I never have. But I did recommend to the OP not to test with flowers outdoors because of motion blur.
