Zuiko 3570mm f35f45

I use this lens as a 'standard' on my OM2n for general everyday shooting. I appreciate that there are quality and performance compromises with zooms as opposed to prime lenses. I have also read reviews on the lens, some good, some mediocre. What are the opinions of the more knowledgeable among us on the quality of this lens?

> I've repaired it but never had a chance to use one. When I say there were 3 35-70s, I intentionally leave out the AF one made for the OM-77/88, and the el-cheapo made by Cosina to go with the OM-2000.
