First time using the Pentax 18-135. I think I'm going to like this lens as a general walkabout. AF is fabulous and it seems sharp where it matters

First up a corrected version of the Hall

Super shots, and I agree the 18-135 is a great lens to have on your camera when out and about.

The only issue I have is that the barrel extends when the camera is slung over my shoulder when I am wondering about. Have you experienced that too?

I agree, Alan, and mine spends 99% of its time on the front of my K-5. Being weatherproof, this is an ideal combination for any outing in the UK! The critical comments on the lens really only apply to the extremes of its parameters - it is very much, as you say and as your photos show, sharp where it matters. In fact, the MTF figures indicate that, for where it matters, and in the middle of the range (f/5.6 to f/11), its resolution compares favourably with that of the Limited lenses.

A good choice - hope you enjoy using it as much as I do.

Thanks for the comments folks. Think this lens will spend quite a bit of time on my camera.
