One of the many benefits of M43 is the ability to adapt pretty much every other lens system there is to it. Because of the crop factor, a relatively small 300mm lens equals a huge 600mm lens on a FF camera and if you look at it this way, it's still very compact. However, you'd be hard pressed to hand hold a legacy 200, much less a 300mm lens on a gripless body. So I can see how the grip still goes with the paradigm of "smaller gear", despite making it bigger.
