Default Zuiko 18-180mm

Well, I got a good price on one of these and picked it up. Should be here Thursday. My main objective was to get a range that I wouldn't have to change lenses as often (between the two kit lenses). I realize it has mixed reviews but, I've read more positive than negative comments on it and look forward to a lighter bag with less swapping. This will undoubtedly be the last glass purchase for a while. The little woman caught wind of this one. <gulp> Even though I explained that the sale of two kit lenses will offset the majority of the cost... she ain't a happy camper

A 9-18 and 18-180 two lens combination seems like a much better grouping than the standard 14-42 and 40-150 setup...at least, I think so. The 18-180 is one of the older lenses out there and it definitely has its' fans. I've seen some really nice images that were shot with it.

I am avoiding the wife-thing myself for the forseeable future. My girlfriend is perfect. We travel together, then I take her back to her place and I go back to mine....

Welllll, now that she's given it some thought, she seems pretty ok with it... sort of.

The shots I've seen taken with it are pretty darned good. If I were professional I'm might have second thoughts but... I ain't so I'm ok with it.

Been married to this one for almost 30 years. I think I'll keep her.
