Ok...let me try again. So on the 4/3 system a 300mm lens is not gonna bring the subject up to the closeness of a 600mm lens..right?

If you take a picture with a 300mm lens on a 4/3 camera, it will be framed similarly to one taken with a 600mm lens on a full-frame (24mm X 36mm) camera. That's because the 4/3 sensor is half the size of the full frame sensor.
