great picture quality for the center of the frame and for the whole focal length range
low chromatic aberration for 35 to 85 mm
well corrected astigmatism
quiet and efficient autofocus
universality in a small size
poor picture quality for 35-50 mm and 135 mm at the edges of the frame
visible chromatic aberration at the ends of the focal length range
large geometric distortion for the whole focal length range
huge vignetting at 18 mm and 135 mm
poor performance in bright light in wide angle mode
poor build quality
To take the place of the Nikkor 18-70 mm, Nikon released a new model - the Nikkor 18-135 mm with more universal parameters and an equally good price. Unfortunately, nothing is for free. Very good picture quality in the center of the frame is offset by poor performance in the edges of the frame. There is huge vignetting and visible chromatic aberration at the ends of the focal length range. The distortion is visible at the whole range of focal lengths.
Another drawback is the poor quality of the body build and the bayonet. So far, the quality of the elements used in the construction do not influence the picture quality, but it is hard to say, after a week of testing, how this plastic is going to perform in a year or two. This could be a problem...
