In a lot of cases, MFT lenses are cheaper than FF equivalents, so I disagree about the price issue.  Eg., MFT systems have some nice 300mm zooms that are a hell of a lot less expensive than the 600mm zooms available for FF.

Not to argue because I have no experience with m43, but what m43 300mm f/4 lens is available that will accurately AF and provide quality equal to the 600mm lenses available for FF?

For 300mm equivalence, you can use Olympus 150mm f/2

For 600mm equivalence, you can use Olympus 300mm f/2.8

Which is well and good but the Olympus 300mm f/2.8 is $7k! Hardly seems viable if the argument is 'hell of a lot less expensive'.
