It's a superzoom and by superzoom standards I think it's quite good. Here's an example taken using an E-330 some 5 years ago:

If there is a criticism, the 18-180 doesn't go as wide as superzooms typically today, but that avoids some extreme optical design compromises.

You can hire (http://e-group.uk.net/hire) one from us to try it out?
