From Robin Wong review :

The amout of fine detail this lens is able to resolve is amazing, with plenty of micro-contrast. The sharpness is also uniform from edge to edge of the frame, showing no corner softness. The quality of the M.Zuiko 40-150mm Pro lens’ bokeh does not disappoint, creating creamy, buttery smooth blurred out of focus area. The subjects in focus was easily “popped” out of the bokeh background, and looking three-dimensional. 

From ThePhoBlographer review :

Among any of the Olympus zoom lens offerings that we’ve tested, the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is the one that I loved the absolute most and almost didn’t want to send back. It’s lightweight, fairly small for what it is, fast to focus, offers crisp image quality, is weather sealed, and won’t fail you when working. For the wedding, sports, portrait, or journalism photographer that needs to work with zooms, you should know that Olympus now has the best zoom lens lineup of any manufacturer in the mirrorless camera world.

From Bestmirrorlesscamerareviews review :

I think that the image samples speak for themselves. The 40-150mm PRO zoom lens can deliver impressive results in terms of sharpness and bokeh and proves to be a very versatile lens especially with the MC-14 teleconverter. There are many usages I can think of.
