If you want to go big and heavy just use any of the OM legacy telephoto lenses on your m43 body. I occasionally use my old Olympus 350 mm f 2.8 on my E-M5 with both its matched 1.4X and 2X teleconverters attached. That's 350 x 2 x 1.4 x 2 = 1960 effective mm. Is that enough for you?

Don't also forget the effective aperture of 2.8*2*1.4*2, i.e f/15. And the effective resolution also reduced proportionally.

As it was mentioned many times, when the lens resolution is much lower than the sensor resolution, the cropping works as an ideal (no aberrations) teleconverter with exactly the same properties (resolution, DOF, f-stop).
