Got mine yesterday and am well pleased. The IQ seems similar to my 14-150.  Pushed up ISO to 800 which is nothing for the EM5 I managed to get a reasonable shot at 1/5th sec, yes that's right 1/5th sec.  Ok the image was doing the tango in the viewfinder but the magic stabiliser sorted it.

Amazing! I'll actually have to try this. Well, not at 1/5s. We'll see tomorrow.

I think though that a tripod or even a monopod is the way to go to get really sharp results.

I have not had success with a monopod carrying such a light load. Not enough inertia for me to keep the load from rocking back and forth. Whom you see using monopods are sports' photographers with huge zoom lenses. But maybe they work for you. I started with a monopod when I first switched to MFT. I was better at getting sharp pictures (with my 14-45mm Panny) hand-holding against my face than using a monopod. After a month of failures, it's been confined to storage.

Highly recommend.

Yes, indeed. Tomorrow I'm off to an arboretum for some aesthetic work: many beautiful flowering trees in bloom, especially spectacular are the magnolias coming out now in Portland, OR.
