Not as good as you's think -- BETTER!
With all of the glory being thrown at this lens as an outdoor distance telephoto, you wouldn't think it would hold its own in a claustrophobic studio situation. But I shot with my new 40-150 PRO in a tight-quartered restaurant corner -- I do operational and training work for a major fast casual brand -- and got the sexiest foodie shots I've ever seen. Fantastic light capture, no color aberrations anywhere and a creamy bokeh behind a surgically narrow depth of field. Sliced onions never looked so good. In addition, the 40-150 PRO's tripod mounting foot pulls the lens back from the subject enough that the camera rarely need to be moved when switching from, say, the 12-40 PRO lens with the camera mounted on the tripod instead. The 40-150 PRO really is the marvel of engineering it's marketed to be, from imagery to ergonomics.

Best Micro 4/3 telephoto zoom so far (if not ever)
This is by far the best micro 4/3 zoom. Nice range of telephotos with very fast and silent focusing speed. Nice shallow DOF due to its focal length (40-150mm) and short minimum focusing distance of less than 1/2 meter. It's my first choice when shooting anything outdoor (or indoor/portraits with good lights)

A Stellar Lens
This is my first m.Zuiko lens, having come from the Zuiko line of lenses for the four thirds system. There is so much to learn and to try with this lens, and the images it captures are as crisp and clear as any I have encountered. My most challenging limitation is myself, but that comes with the territory. I have the E-M1, and this lens fully compliments the camera body. I also purchased the MC-14, and the three components together make a solid performing trio. I've only had the lens for two weeks, and expect to be challenged and learn much more about it in the weeks, months and years to come. Read the reviews, try it for yourself and enjoy what this lens can do.

Great Lens for 4:3rd
It's been well said in the comments above, no contradiction..... BUT the lens foot needs the ARCA grooves! Adding a plate to the foot defeats the compactness of the lens, albeit, the plate acts as a handle! Waiting for Firmware v3 on the EM-1 to check new features.
