This lens has to be compared to something like the C28-300L - I'm not aware of another pro 'super'-zoom lens.
The Canon lens is substantially bigger and more expensive. Go back from there and the Oly is reasonable.
Saying this lens should be compared to the Canon EF 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 L IS USM is strange to say the least...
This 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 is a 14-150mm f1.75-2.8 MFT equivalent lens.
The Canon EF-M 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM is a much closer match to this Olympus. Yes, it is not weather sealed. And the price is $800 less. And it is almost half the weight.
