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.

I agree I am not super thrilled by this zoom. It's good for the class it's in but still not that thrilled with the IQ in the end compared with the better lenses.

But the 12-100 Pro lens is pretty good, which is also very surprising.

Agree, in fact I think it is easily the equal to my 12-49 Pro when the 12-40 is stopped down to f/4. And, maybe even a tad better If I need to go to f/2.8 on the 12-40.
