John Riley has just posted a full review of the Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens ( Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) at the ePhotozine.com. Tested on the Sony A6500, it is a very good lens for general photography and capable of delivering good, bright and sharp images.

Verdict from ePhotozine, “As a general purpose lens, a good 18-135mm is hard to beat on APS-C format cameras. The close focus and long reach lend themselves well to close ups such as flower studies. The 18mm wide angle can accommodate most architecture and landscapes. The close focus means small object photography is simple, and quality of results at these close distances are well maintained….Although not perfect, the lens is still a very good choice for general photography and capable of delivering good, bright and sharp images…”
