50-200 SWD better than 40-150 Pro ?

I never owned any of those lenses but I did shot with both, however on very different cameras and many years apart so I could’t really compare.

So why this post ? Well one of my friends used the 50-200mm extensively on E-520, E-5 then on E-M1 and now on E-M1II. When he bought the E-M1II he also got the 40-150 PRO, but after using it for a while he got rid of it. I was surprised to hear that he said the 50-200mm is much better optically.

This is just from curiosity, I was expecting the 40-150mm to be at least as good or better.
