Since the DA 18-135mm lens it arrived in the hands of Pentaxians, the 7.5x all-in-one zoom has amassed quite the following. As of the publication of this review, there are 82 user reviews that amount to an average rating of 8.52 out of 10.

With the widest zoom range of any current Pentax lens (7.5X), the new 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 ($500, street) is the closest it has today to an all-in-one zoom. A 27–202.5mm full-frame equivalent, this is also one of the few lenses in its class with a weather-resistant (WR) O-ring on the lensmount.

Weather resistant, compact, sporting the new DC motor and all in a very compact package, this new Pentax lens is very appealing. Braving the English rain, we shall see if its performance lives up to its potential.

The new Pentax 18-135mm lens is a very welcome addition to the Pentax lens lineup, and seems like a natural companion to the K-5 and K-30. It boasts impressive AF performance as well as above-average image quality, and offers a flexible multi-purpose zoom range, which when combined with its...

We were quite enthusiastic about the Pentax DA-SMC 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] WR at the time we received it. Regarding the high pricing of the lens we were expecting a very good performance throughout its broad zoom range and all that in a very compact, high quality body.

I held off for a long time before giving this lens a try, due to the poor review on Photozone. I balanced that against good reviews here, a pretty solid Popular Photography review, and many good reviews on Pentax forums.

I could not get a sharp picture with this lens, even though it was brand new. Out of the first 200 photos, I got probably 1 genuinely sharp photo. I was using Pentax k-1 camera mounted on a tripod. Both still-life and people portraits were generally less sharp than my iphone 1.

Lorsque 'ai commencé la photo, je ne voulais pas investir trop d'argent dans l'achat d'objectifs. Après avoir acheter une lentille 17-70mm d'un autre fabricant, payer aussi cher que celle-ci à prix régulier, j'ai découvert qu'il n'y avait rien de parfait en ce bas monde.

Good mid range lens and does what I expected it to do.

Would have given it 5-stars but for these reasons: a) Does not have Zoom Lock. With my current shoulder sling strap, the lens points down, and as I walk the lens barrel starts extending. Note, the Zoom ring is neither too tight nor too loose.

when on vacation I keep this lens on and never feel the need to change it out. the depth of field is great, fast focus and good bokeh. basically everything that you want in good zoom lens.

OK if you need one lens to use, for a variety of tasks, this may well be the perfect lens. With the K-3II you get a 50% increase in effective focal length, making this more of a 24-200mm lens, which is very good for almost any situation. The sharpness is excellent, and speed of focus is superb.

Returning because product was not as described. It was not in a Pentax box, it had no Pentax paperwork or warranty. It was a lens and hood in bubble wrap in a plain white box. Also, there was a sticker saying this product wasn't for sell in the US. Very disappointed.

This lens is my everyday all purpose lens. I take it everywhere. It is fast, quiet and more than adequate for my needs as amateur photographer.

This lens is a great lense for travel, if you only carry one. It goes from wide angle to telephoto. It's not great for low light situations, a prime 50 does much better.
