The 50-200 SWD does not focus as quickly as the 40-150 f2.8.  The 40-150 would also be somewhat sharper.  There is probably little difference in sharpness of the 40-150+MC14 and the 50-200 SWD.  The 50-200 works well with the EC14 giving 283mm at f5.

One of the nice things about the 50-200 SWD is the mechanically linked focus which allows quick manual pre-focusing in any mode and I find that a little faster for pre-focus than the snap manual focus of the mFTs lenses.  It maintains focus reasonably well in CAF mode on the E-M1 MkI.  I do not yet know how well it functions on the new MkII.
