First photos with Sony 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6

I got the Sony 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens yesterday to go with my a6000. I feel I now have a complete rig that is good enough for my use (landscape and travel photos): Sony a6000, 18-135, Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 for ultra-wide, and Meike 35mm f/1.4 for bright standard prime. Total cost about $1500 including the original 16-50mm kit lens. I'm not sure how much I'll use the 16-50 or the Meike 35 given the range of the 18-135. Mass only 915gm (2 Lb) with body + 18-135 + 12mm; good for long hikes even with small tripod and extra batteries.

Here are three of the first photos from the 18-135, all uncropped. The only processing was to open the files in Adobe Camera Raw and save JPEGs at quality=8. The day was snowy and very overcast so the light is flat. I will go out for a more controlled test in better weather.
