The 24-70mm 2.8 lens on my Canon camera contains wraparound text, so I thought it might pose a challenge to Goggles. Goggles was able to identify it successfully, returning results for similar Nikon, Olympus, and Sigma 70mm zoom lenses.
All in all, Google Goggles was not perfect, but was still impressive. Users of the Android app have the choice of enabling or disabling submission of their image search history to Google, and I would expect that the more the feature gets used, the better it will become.
