Robin Wong posted the full review and writes:
The amout of fine detail this lens is able to resolve is amazing, with plenty of micro-contrast. The sharpness is also uniform from edge to edge of the frame, showing no corner softness. The quality of the M.Zuiko 40-150mm Pro lens’ bokeh does not disappoint, creating creamy, buttery smooth blurred out of focus area. The subjects in focus was easily “popped” out of the bokeh background, and looking three-dimensional.

I think that the image samples speak for themselves. The 40-150mm PRO zoom lens can deliver impressive results in terms of sharpness and bokeh and proves to be a very versatile lens especially with the MC-14 teleconverter. There are many usages I can think of.
And our reader Bobby noticed that there is a new set of mind-blowing samples from Frank Rückert at Pen3.de.
UPDATE: Jamie MacDonald has another video answering questions submitted to him about the new 40 to 150mm lens: http://youtu.be/Pb_iFlJt_rU?list=UURsTTR_hQfeYryM6_2Wx3zQ
