    Optically wise, it doesn't seem to be up to the normal Zuiko standards, anyway that is normal for a zoom lens with such a range.

    Will wait for more indepth reviews to be out before comitting on this lense.
    though a 11-22mm + 18-180mm arsenal would be nice for general and travel uses.

    it seems that just like in dpreview, everybody is waiting for the comparision between 18-180mm and the 40-150mm. If optically similar, i believe an good deal of 40-150mm lense would be found in BnS soon.

    We shouldnt compare it with the quality of the 50-200mm as it is of different category altogether.

    The 40-150mm will be better. The 18-180 is a 10x zoom.

    Yes true that the 40-150mm will be better, but by how much would be the main concern for me at least. If only Oly would come out with a 18(or 14)-150mm, wouldnt it be nice ^_^

    I went to TK photo just now, didnt manage to get ME-1 eyecup nor try out the 18-180. They would have it in a week or 2.

    Was also at CP Marina, they have neither of the items(me-1,18-180) mention above. Apparently, the store person told me that they only have accessories in the main store.

    Hi, guys, I got my ME-1 finally from CP!!! I've made my reservation long ago... using it, my fear of the view finder being dimmer or darker is proven wrong. The ME-1 is good, Bright. 1.2x manification. Significant for me.

    Hope you guys can get yours soon.

    BUY BUY BUY, May the BUY-RUS be with U.

    Go reserve it 1st.

    Brings back memories abt the D200 b4 it hit our shores. Some of the regulars reserved the units even without touchin it.

    I see. the 14~54 shld be on the next hit list. u will love the difference it gives over the 14~45

    Yeah! I got mine too from CP. And I agree with shchow. Significant and brighter. I kept comparing it by removing the ME-1 and putting it back on to see. Can definitely see the difference. Guys, go get yours soon!

    Looks like I missed you at CP, shchow. Hahaha...

    shchow & raymond10, how much did you guys pay for the ME-1? Do CP have ready stock?

    That's good news indeed!

    Retail at $79. Gave me $70. Bargained to $68. I bought the 4th last one. So I think left 3 more. Think shchow got it earlier than me so when I left, got 3 more.

    Gee.... you got a better deal than I do . I got it at $70 as his offered. I thought it's already lower than what I expect (tot it's retailed at 80+).

    I'm not sure if they have other stocks or not, 'cos the unit i got is reserved (put aside). Didn't check with them. just give them a call.

    their contacts can be found at http://www.cathayphoto.com.sg.

    Good luck.

    $2 less only. So no big deal. Considering the profits they make at $68 or $70, think they laughing all the way to the bank already.

    hi, chii, i've got the 14~54 already! Its definitely faster than 14~45. Though, i can't say too much bad things about 14~45 also, 'cos I know it's a very capable lens too, have seen many nice pictures taken with the decent kit lens.

    Next on my list are:
    1) 7~14mm or 8mm fisheye (not sure which one more suitable though). After I have the 11~22mm, I realized wide angle lens is very useful lens for me for capturing the "moments"... love the pictures with contexts.
    2) a telezoom. not sure should I just get the prime 150mm F2 or 50~200. For tele, I still don't know what's my shooting habbit yet and what I really need yet. I am thinking of a tele lens that allow me to shoot candids from far. May be some of you can let me have a feel of the tele lens...

    anyway, i've made enough purchases (no more $$$). Now, it's for me to make full use of the current wonderful setup I have.
