How Good is the Olympus 40-150 at 150mm for sharpness?

I know this is a popular kit lens that sounds like it punches above it's weight for price.

I'm tossing up whether I'll get it or not for my G5, but keen to see what it can do at 150mm in terms of sharpness.

I've already sold my 45-200 as too large. The 45-175 and 45-150 don't seem to inspire wrt to long end sharpness, but I guess they have OIS.

I fully expect to get an OMD body in the not too distant future so perhaps the inclusion of lens IS is not so critical hence why I'm considering this lens.

Tedolph, I know you recommend this often and quote $99, but despite the fact the aussie $ is stronger than the US I haven't seen it anywhere here or online, even grey import for anything less than ~$250?

Picswould be welcome.
