I have just uploaded a few images and made some commentary on another thread regarding the m43 40-150:

I think both 40-150 lenses (43 and m43) are very good optically, but there are some interesting problems with these lenses due to their light weight. I think extra care is required to stabilise the camera and lens to ensure a sharp image. I am quite confident that even the poor quality of my tripod is having a negative impact on the images I am getting from this lens. Here are some samples, and take note of the comparison to the 50mm macro.
