An ideal all-around lens, the FUJIFILM XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a versatile 27-206mm-equivalent zoom, covering wide-angle to medium telephoto fields of view. Well-suited for travel and walkaround shooting, the expansive reach of this lens is further complemented by a sophisticated optical design, which uses ED and aspherical elements, to produce high color accuracy, sharpness, and image clarity. An HT-EBC coating also improves contrast and color neutrality by reducing flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions. Also benefitting use in a variety of situations, a linear motor delivers quick and quiet autofocus performance and a five stop-effective image stabilization system minimizes the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the lens is fully weather-sealed for working in inclement conditions.

FUJIFILM XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Reviews
Best underrated lens on the market. Tack sharp!
I Love This Lens; it even holds up in pixel-peeping tests to my primes at equivalent apertures. I bought this lens as part of a deliberately small but well planned travel, hiking and walkabout kit built around the Fuji X system. The attached image is of a Coyote that wandered through my backyard a few days after receiving my lens last winter. It was photographed on the Fuji X-T3 with the 18-135 mm zoomed out all the way to135mm (35mm equivalent 206mm), through a closed kitchen window, and cropped 8-fold! Out of camera jpeg, no post! I rest my case.
I use this lens as my default as I like to talk up close and landscape pictures for fun. As I am not a professional can not give you that level of review. I can say it does have some challenges at maximum zoom.
Review of Fujinon 18-135 lens for nature photography
I got the 18-135 for my Fuji xt3 so I could get better images of Florida freshwater environments than I could with my Olympus TG5. I'm very pleased with the 18-135. The lens makes it easy to capture interesting scenes. If I manage to get closer, I can even get nice wildlife images. The lens pairs well with the 100-400 which I use mostly for birds, alligators, turtles, and river otters. The lens replaced my Fuji 50-140. The 18-135 does not have the acuity or wider aperture of that lens, but the output is surprisingly good, and it is a wider, lighter solution for my needs.
Pretty much the only lens you need day or low light! Great stabilization, hands free at 1/15 of a sec. Priceless lens
A versatile value
Very versatile and will make a nice image. With versatility often comes compromise and I feel this lens is no exception. Images could be a little sharper but at this price and covering this range it does it's job very well. It is an acceptable grab one lens and go option for most situations. I've used it mostly on an X-T3.
This is a great walking around lens and great for travel. I'm not a professional - but love taking pics and I'm happy with this purchase.
Versatility over constant lens swapping.
First off I'm going to say that as an XF WR lens you are getting very high quality no matter what. This lens does have some downsides, I do notice some vignetting around the edges especially at maximum zoom and there are some minor sharpness issues throughout. That's not the reason you should buy this lens. if you want sharp as attack zoom you've gotta go for fuji's telephoto f/2.8. Hands down the best. If you want a zoom for professional use, the 16-55 f/2.8 has you covered. This is the lens that I slap on my camera when I am just going out somewhere and I am taking photos for me or if I'm doing a minor event shoot where the photos are going on a website, in the paper, or social media and I need maximum versatility. I far prefer some of the majestic shots that come out of my primes but at the end of the day I prefer practicality if it's not a professional shoot. It's a 27 to 206mm FF equivalent lens with great build quality and weather resistance. For the price you're not going to find a more versatile lens out there.
This lens is really sharp and covers a great zoom range. I highly recommend it.
