For not too much money, buy a Nikon 1 V1 or V2, the FT adaptor, and the Nikon 70-300 lens. 810mm effective reach at f5.6. Full auto-everything and VR (although center spot focusing only). And the camera itself doesn't weigh much.

You can crop the m43 image instead with the same results. You are forgetting that your equivalent 810mm lens will also have an equivalent f/15 wide aperture, hardly usable anywhere but in a bright sunny day.
