Sounds like you didn't get a good copy of the 18-135 the second go round. I rented one, found it was awesome. Purchased a 2nd hand one and am very happy with it. I like the range on 16-70 (I rather have 16mm than 18mm) but getting a good copy is much more of a crap shoot than I'd rather deal with.

My experience with the 16-70 and 18-135 is similar. I tried several 16-70s and a single 18-135. I'm much happier with the IQ and sharpness of the 18-135 for walkaround use.

I use the Sigma 16/1.4 Contemporary for wider shots. I also use the Sigma 18-35/1.8 Art on the Sigma MC-11 for more serious than walkaround work, I call it my handful of primes.
