If Nikon made their 300 f/4 in m4/3 mount, they'd sell me one in an instant.

I just bought a Nikon ED 300mm f4.5 IF lens from KEH, popped a Fotodiox adaptor on it, then onto my GH2. Great lens, works perfectly! The cool thing is, if I want, I'll be able to use the same lens on a Nikon body, or buy an adaptor and use it on a NEX, or a Fuji, etc..

There's no way either Nikon or Canon will start offering their lenses with M4/3 mounts.

Luckily we M4/3 users aren't limited in that respect. We have companies like Rainbow Imaging, Fotodiox and others that sell reasonably priced lens adaptors for nearly every lens, with nearly any mount, made in the past 50 or 60 years.

In fact, I have M4/3 adaptors for all my Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Voigtländer lenses.

Oh wait, you might insist on autofocus and auto-exposure. Dream on...
