Cons: Fairly slow at long end (6.3) and at 250 mm you want to go f8 or 11 for best results. OSM not as good as nikon optical stabilization (I find 2 -3 improvment vs 3-4 for my Nikons)
Pros: great value for money. very compact lens for super zoom. quick focus very good image quality 18-180 and if you use F11 at 250 very good there as well. good build quality, solid feel.
Summary: As with all superzooms there are compromises but if aware of them you can shoot excelent images with great versitility in a very compat lens (about as small as my 18-55 Nikon kit lens and outperforms it in the 18-55 range). I tool over 1000 pictures on my recent vacation to Hawaii with this and was very happy with it. I can certiantly recomend it.
