Re: Consider newly announced 16-55/2.8 too?

Just picked up a 18-135mm f3.5 - 5.6 from a local retailer (via their Ebay store) for A$826. I'll use this for general photography, travel and photos of my kids etc.

Now... even though I haven't taken any photos with it, I've got a bit of buyers remorse.... I've noticed that, from the same retailer (via Ebay store) that the Zeiss 16-70mm f4 is only A$162 more @ A$988.

Is it worth returning the 18-135mm and getting the 16-70? Is the Zeiss worth the extra cash?

More money, but most versatile?

Between the 16-70 and 18-135, I'd pick the 18-135 and I'd add a f/1.8 prime lens. It is a more practical range.

But 18 is not always wide enough, 18 vs 16 can be a big difference at times.
