Ver Valley (near St Albans) quick K3iii 18-135 snaps

Took the 18-135 out for the first time with the K3iii yesterday morning for a quick walk before it got hot. It's very convenient and focus is very assured with the new camera. Not quite so impressed with the lens (I had one previously with the K-5iiS and thought it was really quite excellent then as long as you understood its strengths and I don't think this copy is quite as good) but it's very convenient and will sometimes be more than "good enough". The third photo is my favourite, although the colours from all three are quite appealing I think?

Lovely colours indeed. Good composition on all three, although the background on the first is a bit distracting.

The third image is really interesting.
All the gear with no idea

I really like the graphic quality of the bottom two - and agree about the lovely colours.

I have an 18-135 for my K-5iis and think that it's an absolute cracking thing for what is essentially just a 'walk-about' lens.

I agree with all the previous comments.

Perhaps also clone out the bright distraction bottom right of the last image?

Very much like 2 & 3 (with 3 tickling my brain most), and the colours are indeed great all around.

no.3 works for me, but agree, lovely colours in them all.

All 3 are well seen and taken, like all 3
