what I should expect from the 40-150 + TC, and if I would really lose any reach.

You could use Google translation to get a rough translation of the article that I've written in French about the M.Zuiko 40-150mm F/2,8 + M.Zuiko MC-14:

Sometimes, that lens hunts to make focus, especially when in the previous shot, the subject was far and in the new short, the subject is near. When it fails to make focus, I'd put the news in manual mode, make focus (roughly) and put back the lens in automatic-focussing mode.

I don't have the M.Zuiko 300mm F/4,0 but from what I've read, teleprime is faster than the combo.

The main reason why I like the combo is its buttery bokeh at its long end...

... which is a lot better than its bokeh at its close end:
