There is no doubt that the new Sony E 18-135mm lens has a real place amongst those that could be considered as general purpose/travel companions. Designed for APS-C format cameras, and here reviewed with the Sony Alpha A6500 body, this gives a full format “35mm equivalent” similar to the 28-200mm...

The Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is a big step up from the kit lenses that ship with Sony's APS-C mirrorless cameras, at a price that won't break the bank.It's pretty small and lightweight considering the versatile 7.5x zoom range on offer, and it delivers great image quality with the minimum of...

I just received this lens which replaced my Sony 18-105 PZ. I never needed the power zoom function but it was the best zoom option I found. I tried the Tamron 18-200 but found the images were just a tad too soft compared to the 18-105. Im happy with this new zoom. Much lighter and smaller.

The 18135SEL exceeded my expectations, although I hoped for the best based on this website's intial review. IQ is really quite good across the board - rare for such a long range zoom.

    Excellent IQ wide open in centers and edges - corners sharpen a couple stops down OSS is a big help with a6000/a6300 bodies AF is quick and accurate Compact, light and easy to operate

I owned the 18-105 before this as my primary travel lens. I liked the images and videos it took, but was always a bit annoyed at how heavy and bulky it felt and, as a result, brought it out and about with me less and less.

Performance seems to be on par with the 16 - 50 and 55 - 210 kit lenses. It is shorter and lighter than the 55 - 210 with a reasonable 27 - 202 35mm equivalent telephoto range making it a very convenient walk around and travel lense.

I had been using an 8 year old kit lens that was purchased originally with my first E-mount camera, a NEX3...I bought it with the 18-55mm kit lens to get started - and as I upgraded camera bodies along the way, there never seemed like a reason to upgrade the kit lens.

I replaced my Sony E PZ 18-105mm with this lens. The 18-105 would not allow any Sony clearimage zoom because of it's built in electric zoom, more video orientation on my A6500. Not that I use clearimage zoom often but every once in awhile it comes in very handy.

This is the lens I have been waiting for. Had the Sony 28-70 lens and that was my go to lens but had to change it out for large group photos and had to change for longer distance shots. This is a great utility lens that will stay on my camera.

Great standard zoom lense, will likely live on camera displacing the kit lense. Far more flexible than 16-50 for candid portraits and general photography

    Durable, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls

I bought this lens for my Sony a6300 for an everyday lens that pretty much stays on my camera all the time. I love this lens. I find at certain f stops the edges are soft and not as sharp as I expected. 18mm has vignetting and there is some chromatic aberration but I can work with it.

I have only had the Sony E 18-135mm a few days, but I like the way it feels on my A6300, IMO it actually feels better than the Sony E 16-70mm, the barrel does not extend as far as you zoom through the range. Test shots I have taken are sharp and have good colour rendition.
