Since 18-135 is a more complicated design (more elements and groups) I’d wager it’s always going to be farther from it’s theoretical optimum design state than the 18-55 as long as the are built the same way.

Good hypothesis.

The imaging-resource.com lens testing of the 18-55 vs 18-135 pretty much agrees with the opticallimits.com testing. Hard to compare at 55mm but here's the comparison around 35mm. Of course it's great that the 18-135 "goes up to 11."
