What's the big difference other than cosmetrics? Better video performance?  According to Olympus:

Retaining the high performances of the previous M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 telephoto zoom lenses, incorporate the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism and achieve fast, quiet AF using the inner focus method.

Anyone owned both?
