Happy with my Pentax DA 18-135 WR Lens

MVC, Amazon

  • Summary: In the center, this is a 5 star lens at all focal lengths and f-stops. At the right and left sides it is a 3-4 star lens. In the extreme corners it is a two star lens and deteriorates to a one star from 100mm to 135mm.

  • Summary: Chromatic aberation at certain settings. Did not come with Pentax lens shade or warranty. This should have been explained on ordering page, even though I saved some money.

Good all-round lens

Øystein Riise Næss, Amazon

  • Summary: A really good all-round lens. I've got a high-quality 18-50mm lens from another maker, and my plan was to swap between these two - as my 18-50mm has a better low-light performance etc.

Good product but misleading product description

Photographer, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I never realized how important WR really is until I spent time at Niagara Falls. I did not dare to take my camera out because my WR lenses are 50-135 and 55-300 which are too long when I was walking underneath the fall.

Nice lens but a bit expensive for what you get

Aldo R. Perez "aldorp", Amazon

  • Summary: I own 9 compatible Pentax lenses and this one has the most personality of them all. The 18-135mm basically tries to keep a sharp center (even at longer lengths) but has soft corners at most focal lengths and apertures.

walk about lens

Ted Beilby, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: This lens has hardly been off my K3 since I got it. Great for a walk around lens. Doesn't rate with my Limiteds or Star lenses but very good IQ and is weather sealed. Great range and focus is fast.

Good choice

Family and Vacation Photographer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this as my everyday lens for vacations and around the house for my family and pets. After using it for a couple of years, my first copy got dropped five feet onto a wood floor and ever since has been not so sharp (still works though). So I got a second copy to replace it to use on my K3.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
