Looks like a decent super-zoom for its price, but not my cup of tea.

From the samples I saw in this review, center sharpness is good and I am overall satisfied with what I see as a hobbyist photographer. Personally, although not an Olympus user (apart from a TG5), if they bundle this lens with the expected EM5 III I think it will be a very interesting kit. Some dilemmas that are coming up:

1) How is the lens compared to the 75-300 or 100-300 at same FL? Would cropping to 300 produce a similar result?

2) How is the lens compared to the 14-150 and 14-140?

3) How is this kit compared to the 1" super zooms (RX10/3, FZ1000)?
