    the answer's pretty simple.

    find out wad's the usual focal length u will use. if u need a longer reach, then get the 18-135. otherwise get the 18-105

    shoot more to discover how much more reach u need.

    price and weight. 18-135 is more expensive and slightly lighter. that's all

    The 18-135 does not have VR, keep that in mind.

    Vibration reduction, to me its very important cos i don't have very steady hands. Helps me a lot for my handheld shots.

    it's not as simple as that... the 18-135mm doesn't have VR that's a big factor esp for zoom lenses unless u intend to shoot only on tripod or u have a pair of ultra stable hands. Although it gives u more reach, the lack of VR is big minus pt. google more to learn abt the pros n cons...

    Just for your info, when a lens says VR, IS, OS, VC etc etc.... It all means the same thing, to help with reducing the chances of blurring caused by camera shake.
