Yup.  Does look that way.  

Impressive from first view and am sure Oly' users be pleased.  Years back, I can recall being in Gothenburg, Sweden, drooling in a shop window of the original Om series.  (last century, as a young lad in my twenties).   Next to  a bunch of Hasselblad's naturally.

I am seriously looking into Olympus as a travel system and the 40-150 is a compact beast of a lens, the TC's will make it all that more flexible. darn this hobby :)
That said some of those examples are downright horrible, mainly due to the high ISO noise reduction in the shots.

Why can't Nikon make a quality 2x extender?

Looks like a good combo for travelling.

The better light in those examples make a better example.
