Default 1st images with DA 18-135mm

After seeing Tony's posts and shots and also wanting a walk around lens I chose the 18-135 and so far am very happy with my choice. The silent and fast focus and not having to carry 2 lenses unless I am looking for wildlife or sports was my reasoning. The lens is about the length of my 18-55 kit lens but heaver. Here are 2 days of walking, golf and skeet shooting.

Nice series. I am also very much interested in that lens, and I'd be interested in seeing more of your photos taken with that lens. Please keep 'em coming!

Very nice! I got to shoot one on Pentax World Day (the picture of the Huntington Library's building was taken with it). I was impressed more than I had expected to be. It's better than my version 1 kit lens, maybe not up to the same quality as the DA* or Limited primes, but very acceptable. Since I want something in the normal range that's weather-sealed, I've been thinking about it. It would be a lot lighter than the 16-50.

Nice set Hans! You'll love the lens. Don't think I have taken mine off since the Italy trip.
