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

Typical superzoom. Aperture closes down real fast. IQ at long end is just so so.

At $899 they'd have to have a 50% off sale to even get me to think about it. Waay overpriced for its capabilities.

Oly continues to create new cameras and lenses I have absolutely no interest in. Batting 100% there.

How do you dare to say these things............... ? You will be crucified no doubt....... You heretic and traitor of the Olympus faithful............

Aperture closing down very fast???? IQ at the long end is not up to snuff?????? Man, those things do not matter, this lens is another Olympus masterpiece...... Photographers need long super zooms with slow aperture and other optical compromises.......

Anyhow, you should get a wig, a fake moustache  and use strong make-up from here on because someone might get you on the street............

Best, AIK
