Excerpt: This lens seems very sharp and clean. The first thing I shot was the recent eclipse and it did a very good job; even though the range was only 180 zoom. most lens would give problems at their telephoto end, but this one kept it's quality quite well out at it's maximum range.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
A very pleasant surprise - much better performance than anticipated

Summary: I guess that I have had a very different experience with this lens than the lead reviewer. That lead review kept me away from purchasing this lens for quite some time. As the standard 4/3 format begins to wither and fade, zuiko lenses have dropped in price and it was possible to purchase this 18-180...
Excerpt: I traded my 14-42 mm and 40-150 mm lenses for this lens. I plan to use it for an all round travel lens. First thing to note is that you will need a 4/3 adapter to use this lens on a on a micro 4/3 camera such as my E-PL1.
Excerpt: I use this lens as my general travel lens on a OM-D E-M5. The 18-180mm (36-360 equiv) does a great job for sports and super-tele photo work and is still capable of moderate travel landscape work. The only drawback of the lens is that it's a bit chucky with a large outside diameter.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
