abunda_amazon_reviews This one lens can handle quite a few situations, from landscape and architectural photography at the wide end, to portrait photography in the middle, and as a mild telephoto at the long end. While this zoom lens may not be as sharp as individual prime lenses, the results I have experienced so far with this lens mounted on my Sony A6000 are wonderful. I can't recommend this lens enough for those who either can't afford individual prime lenses or who just don't want the hassle of carrying multiple lenses around and having to change them often (like myself).;;Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;The perfect walk-around lens.;;James Morrell;;;I have this lens mounted on my Sony A6500. I also have the SEL1018, SEL50F18, SEL35F18, and the kit SELP1650 (which I never use). I find I use this lens (SEL18135) 90% of the time now and just find it really easy to carry around and get a decent range with good quality. I use for stills as I don't really do video. I'm purely an amateur photographer, so not using this lens for anything other than my hobby so take that into account. These opinions are purely subjective - no technical measurements. Pros are: light weight, small size, good image quality, quick focus in good light. Cons are: sometimes hunts for focus in low light, vignetting on wide angle end, doesn't obey the in-camera focus setting (have to use the AF/MF switch on the lens). Regarding vignetting, I shoot everything in RAW and when you apply the lens adjustment for this lens in Lightroom it fixes it automatically, so not a big deal. See the driftwood shots for example of before and after. In short, I like this lens a lot and would definitely buy it again. I attached a few photos. Most have been edited in Lightroom.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Very happy with this lens;;Dave;;;I sold a Sony G-lens 18-105 to get this 18-135, and i couldn't be happier. Some folks will think that's crazy, because the 18-105 G is supposed to be so great, but honestly, this lens totally outshines that one for a lot of reasons. First - it's lighter and SO much easier to just hang off my shoulder. It fits nicely into my hand, and has super smooth zoom and focus action. I've only had it a couple of days (and it's been raining!), but from what i can tell, the colors are crisp, the detail superb, and it's super easy to use. I love that there's a manual/auto focus button right on the lens itself, making it easy to avoid the whole menu system. I bought mine from Cardinal Camera via Amazon, and they sell this as used, but it's really not . . . it's part of a kit that they break down and sell outright. Saved 100 bucks going that route and am super happy! This is truly THE walk-around lens i've been looking for - for 4 years!!;;Reviewed in the United States on December 14, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best Walk-around lens for Sony;;LizLea;;;Let me get this out of the way - this lens is awesome. It’s light weight, and high quality. I can’t believe Sony managed to engineer an 18-135 lens this size and weight. My A6300 and this lens fit into my Zing pouch (L) with space to spare. The image quality is an improvement over the kit lens and more than enough for my hobbyist needs. I also have the SEL50F18 lens which complements this nicely.

Currently I have the a6500 and was feeling not so positive about the whole camera system and had considered moving on to another brand. I have the 16, 18-200, 18-55, and others and go through periods of love/hate with my photography and creating videos. After realizing that I would be spending $2,000 for another brand, I decided to buy the 18-135 to not only save a lot of money, but to inspire a new hope in what I do. Once I received the lens, I was shocked by the dramatic difference in image quality and the videography was so much better. This lens has helped me to push my a6500 further and go through all the menus and choose much better settings that are yielding much better photo and videos. I can't imagine using this camera without this lens. I would highly suggest you take a look at this lens to see if it would help you, too.
