I added both lens to my basket went out for a while, when I got back I had another look at the listing for the 16-70 and noticed a £70 discount voucher which brought the price of the 16-70 down to £389, which is a steal.

I did weigh things up between that lens and the 18-135 (which I'd always considered getting) but the F4 constant aperture and smaller size of the Zeiss-branded lens swayed it for me, compared with the variable aperture of 3.5 to 5.6 of the 18-135.  Also the 16mm at the short end was important so I've ended up buying the 16-70 - hopefully it'll be a good copy without the QA issues that were widely reported shortly after the lens was first released.
