I have been using the 18-135 on my a6300 for a while now and have to say I am VERY impressed with it.

I guess it depends  what you want but, having compared it to the 16-70 in the store, other than having a wider angle and constant F4, I couldn't find any reason to go for the 16-70. The 18-135 is a really useful range and is very light so, for me, it makes a great carry around, flexible outfit. I'm not an expert but I could not see that the 16-70 out performed the 18-135 in terms on image quality and the weight saving / flexibility of the 18-135 outweighed the slightly faster aperture (at longer lengths) and wider angle.

I've used MANY lenses over the years and the 18-135 is one of the best all purpose kit lenses I have come across.
