Showing 1-10 of 10
Great for family photos - Not so good for business

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...
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.
Summary: I had previously owned one of these lenses and as I noted in an earlier review no one could have wanted this lens to be the great single lens "travel lens" more than I did, but alas the lens just came with too many shortcomings to work well with my E-500.
Excerpt: This lens is a joy to work with, but you have to be willing to live with its sharpness limitations when you look at the pictures. I have an E3 that I use primarily for macro photography and portraits.
Excerpt: Decent picture quality for the price, on the other hand, quite slow focus for a lens at this price. Would be ok to use on a back up camera. But if you have a better lens with fast focus, you might get frustrated with this one.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: The overall size and weight of the Olympus D-510 2 lens kit (14-42 and 45-150) offered a small, light kit that is very versatile. My only issue is I find myself in a lot of situations where a rapid lens change is required with this combination so I was looking for something in a single lens that...
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...
