I'm very curious about the image difference between an Olympus pro zoom lens vs their non-pro. Could someone post similar images of the same focal length? I read interviews that there is , in fact, a significant difference, but have never owned a pro lens.

The bottom line: is it worth it to get the best results?

I don't think the difference is image quality so much as capabilities in general. The pro lenses are generally faster (in aperture, and maybe AF) and tougher. OTOH the non-pro stuff, by virtue of the slow aperture sacrifice, is smaller/lighter/cheaper.

At a given aperture and FL, the pro lens will often be sharper, but I have found this to be the least important difference.
