Olympus 18-180 mm zoom lens

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. The lens is heavier than both the lenses it replaces however is a better quality than its micro 4/3 counterparts.
Summary: I am very pleased with this very functional lens. I wish it was a bit faster at the higher focal length... but overall a great lens for travel and general outdoor shots. I decided to keep my Olympus E620 camera due to this lens. I have 3 Nikon camera's aand use them for sports and low light sports but this lens is great for travel and general outdoor work.
Summary: telephoto shooting catches edge of lens hood in photos quite a bit of grain when shooting in smaller aperatures even when have low ISO if you like macro, don't even think this lens can get you that a good combo of the 14-42 and 40-150 lenses if you get tired of switching them on the camera body (like i did)
Summary: Lo compré para utilizarlo en viajes y paseos familiares, lo utilizo con mi Olympus E 620, y va de maravillas, si bien no es un lente pro su desempeño va de acuerdo a lo anunciado, para mí lo mejor es que se pasa a las focales largas con tan solo un golpe de muñeca, bastante atractivo su comportamiento en exteriores, en interiores hay que encontrarle el truco para que se comporte con luz baja, pero para eso están los flash que lo dejan a la altura de un objetivo pro en...
Great Zoom lens, ideal for daylight or bright light scenes

Summary: I've used this for about a month now and so far I've been quite pleased with the performance of this lens. Other than the impressive zoom, there really isn't anything very impressive about the lens. The F3.5 falls off very quickly to F5.1 at about 50mm, which means the lens is overall pretty slow. Size-wise, the lens is quite compact, but not as light as I thought it would be. The lens is pretty heavy as compared to the kit lens (although this is understandable).
Summary: Like that it can be your general lens you leave on camera and you can grab the camera and go most anywhere and be ready to take photos of any event. better quality than kit lenses-much-but heavier also(trade-off). Then again no big need to lug a heavy camera bag with extra lenses around so its better trade-my opinion only. Seems to take nice photos-will even micro pretty well. all in all nice all round lens.
Summary: Ce mégazoom est de trés bonne facture; de construction lourde.Il aurait pu être un poil plus lumineux à 180mm.Son prix le classe dans la gamme "grand public".Ce type de zoom est trés pratique en balade ou voyage, évitant de prendre deux objectifs.
