That is exactly what I want. I frequently stand around for hours getting photos of egrets and eagles coming to nests. I do this with an APS-C Canon and 500mm lens. I could do the exact same thing with a much lighter 300f4 or 400f5.6 and my Panasonic G5. This would save me roughly 5 pounds of equipment. That would be so nice when I have to walk 1 mile with camera, tripod and lens.

I would insist on a tripod mount so I did not have to hand hold for long periods of time and to get better images because of shutter shock and camera movement.  A lens hood is also mandatory.
