Great for family photos - Not so good for business

CameraBuff, olympusamerica.com

  • Summary: I have had this lens for several years, and have taken it all around the world and taken 10's of thousands of pictures with good luck. When I started using this for eBay images the lens was OK but required a ton of light to allow proper focus and the long focal length required I use a tripod even at 100 or 125th of a second to get a sharp image.

  • Summary: lots of noise unless you have light, light, light, then still needs touch up, Good lens for its specs, olympus needs to rethink its lens diversity and quality and get rid of its lowerend and reset the price for upper end and high quality lenses.

Jack of all Trades - Master of None

copacetic.life, Ebay
23 August 2009
  • Summary: When I bought this lens, I really hoped it would replace my two kit lenses. Unfortunately, in order for the lenses to have such a great range, sacrifices had to be made. The pictures overall have been very soft and the focusing is sub-par to say the least. Although it is a hassle to change lenses when out and about, the picture quality justifies it. This lens is decent, but if sharpness is what your hoping for, this lens doesn't offer any.

Not for indoors

Egemen C., Newegg

  • Summary: - Indoors shots will be 90% blurry
  • Pros: - Great walkaround lens
  • Cons: - The aperture drops right away around 35mm making long range significantly slow

Is it really Olympus!?

mhajarat, B&H Photo

  • Summary: I guess that my Olympus 50mm f/2.0 lens made me expect too much from this lens. Although it does cover a wide range and although it offers a 10x zoom, I wouldn't say that the 18-180mm lens is a 10/10 lens; more like 7/10 probably. I thought that the quality of pictures are sub-Olympus standard as compared to the other 3 Olympus lenses I have.

polyvalent certes, mais...

anonyme, digixo.com
26 September 2010
  • Conclusion: un objectif pratique pour sa polyvalence, mais qui nécessite une prise en main complexe pour en tirer vraiment parti (en jouant notamment sur la profondeur de champ)
  • Pros: grand angle et zoom puissant, bonne luminosité
  • Cons: -) poids un peu élevé -) l'autofocus a du mal à faire le point -) les images manquent de netteté avec le zoom ou le grand angle au max

Durchschnitt

A. Seifer "Hobbyknipser", Amazon
6 August 2008
  • Summary: Das Zuiko 18-180 ist wie von Olympus gewohnt, sehr gut verarbeitet und erstaunlich kompakt. Durch den 2fach Crop liegt die Anfangsbrennweite bei 36 mm. Da haben die für APS-C Kameras gebauten Sigmas, Tamrons und wie sie alle heißen mit kleinbildäquivalenten Anfangsbrennweiten zwischen 27 und 28 mm aber deutlich mehr Weitwinkel. Die Lichtstärke ist klassentypisch schwach. Dadurch reduziert sich der Einsatzbereich auf die Schönwetter- und Urlaubsfotografie.

kompaktes 10fach Zoom

jop4711, eBay.de
21 March 2008
  • Summary: Das Zuiko ED 18-180mm f/3.5-6.3 ist ein wirklich handliches 10fach Zoom, welches "immer dabei" sein kann und einen großen Anwendungsbereich gewährleistet. Es ist ideal geeignet für Reisefotografie, man braucht praktisch kein weiteres Objektiv mitnhemen. Die Abbildungsqualität ist hervorragend.
