Re: Why the eighteen-135 makes so much sense.
18-135 is my first Pentax lens and I agree that it is a convenient travel lens.

Re: Why the 18-135 makes and so much sense.
I couldn’t agree more to the point where I purchased 2 of them ane for the K3 bag and ane for the K3 Ii bag. The Pentax eighteen-135mm along with the Pentax 16-85mm and Sigma 17-70mm are my standard walk arounds for Pentax crop bodies. I’m still using my Canon stuff for what piffling professional I still do since retirement but would non hesitate to apply one of the K3’due south with the xviii-135 to document a wedding reception.

Re: Why the 18-135 makes so much sense.
Yes, well-nigh used lens on my K5 for final ix years. Sort of “replaced” sigma 17-70/2.eight-iv.five which I was using equally general purpose lens before.
Simply sometimes I’g thinking about getting DA18-270 or Sigma 18-300..
And aye, I have several lenses optically well above 18-135WR, just the size, weight, handy eighteen to 135mm range, atmospheric condition sealing and fast focusing simply wins.. E’er in my bag. Even if I have 17-fifty/two.8, 70-200-ii.viii and 35/1.4 packed there besides
*HINT* DA18-135 works with ane.5x TC Kenko SHQ and with 1.7 Pentax AF TC. Eye image quality is plenty good even if magnified past TC.
Talking about 18-135.. this roughly equals to 28-200mm lens field of view on FF camera. And there is no such modern lens available for K-1. Merely some really old 28-200 or 28-300 Tamrons/ Sigmas..
This is another K1 portfolio hole that needs to be covered. DFA 28-105/3.five-5.6 is nowhere almost and carrying multiple lenses kills the “small & light” function.
