Overview

This is lightweight, compact and with a great 10x standard zoom lens covered to the range of distinct telephoto effect. It is equivalent to 36-360mm on a 35mm camera. The almighty lens can cover most of shooting scene. The closest focusing distance is down to 45cm in entire zoom area, and 0.23x (equivalent to 0.46x on a 35mm camera) of magnification allows you close-up shots. Two ED lenses and two aspherical lenses compensate each aberration to give the high-performance in entire zoom area.

Directly compatible with E-System cameras. Compatible with Micro Four Thirds digital cameras (PEN\OM-D) through use of the MMF-2 or MMF-3 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter). The MMF-3 is dust and splash proof for use with that type of lens on a dust and splash proof body. Note, AF performance may diminish as compared to being on an E-System body.

Customer Reviews of the Zuiko Lens ED 18-180mm f3.5-6.3

August 24, 2013

Roger

Underrated Lens in the Lineup

First and foremost, this lens is a part of the SG range of Zuiko lenses. There are also HG lenses, of which I own three (11-22, 50 Macro and 50-200) and there are also SHG lenses, of which I own four (7-14, 14-35, 35-100 and 150). A comparison with these higher grade with more refined optics and build would be unfair.

Within its class, I find this lens to perform quite well, with the added benefit of the 10X telephoto range. I find the lens to excel in near macro and close up settings. Yes, this lens performs better with more light, and typically that is when I shoot with the SG lenses. This is a step up from the kit lenses, and offers the shooter a versatile and well built lens for a variety of situations.

Lense I use 90 Percent of the time

This lens is the one lens I take everywhere, there may be sharper lenses but this one is fine for most things. When you don't want to carry a lot of weight or be ready for any type of shooting this is the one I take.

Great for family photos - Not so good for business

I have had this lens for several years, and have taken it all around the world and taken 10's of thousands of pictures with good luck. When I started using this for eBay images the lens was OK but required a ton of light to allow proper focus and the long focal length required I use a tripod even at 100 or 125th of a second to get a sharp image.

softspot, lots of noise, needs plenty of light

lots of noise unless you have light, light, light, then still needs touch up,

Good lens for its specs, olympus needs to rethink its lens diversity and quality and get rid of its lowerend and reset the price for upper end and high quality lenses.

overall decent lens

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)

BH

Great all purpose lens

This lens is a big upgrade over the two kit lenses. The focal length is great and keeps you from having to change between lenses often. Good focus time and sharp images as long as you have enough light. If you don't want to carry multiple lenses, this is perfect.

Vino

Good general purpose lens.

Not as contrasty or sharp as the higher end lenses but it is still a great all-purpose lens.
