Jessops have the Olympus 4/3 18-180mm superzoom for just £149 which is about half the price of other stores. As it's originally an APS-C design there's no wide angle on a 4/3 body (36 - 360mm equivalent) and while there's no OS, most of the recent Olympus bodies have IS onboard

This can be mounted on a micro 4/3 body with an adapter although as this lens is an older one, it isn't optimised for contrast detect AF which means it will either focus slowly on the Olympus bodies or later Panasonic models (G2/G10) or not at all on the earlier ones (G1/GH1/GF1)

Well, there is some wide angle but not much (assuming 50mm standard @ 35mm equivalent). This lens is quite a bit larger than the micro 3/4 lenses.

Generally the custom is anything less than 35mm is wide angle, usually superzooms are around the 28-280mm range - this is based on the Sigma 18-200mm for APS-C which does give some wide angle coverage on the bodies it was designed for.

This lens is actually smaller and lighter than the Panasonic micro 4/3 14-140mm superzoom lens (without adapter, will be slightly longer with the adapter attached) although I'm not recommending it for micro 4/3, just pre-empting questions about compatibility which I've seen in the past here particularly as the lens is a fraction of the cost of the micro 4/3 superzoom lenses.
