Aren't you also excited about the 150mm f2.8, that is a pretty awesome spec also!  Imagine how big a FF 300 mm f2.8 would be....not to mention 6-7 lbs in weight.

As a (part time) FF user, I am not sure why I would get excited about a m43 150/2.8 in lieu of a 300/2.8 on FF,  600/2.8 on 6x7, 1200/2.8 on 4x5, or a 2400/2.8 on 8x10.  For a given FOV, there are always smaller (and much cheaper!) options, and DOF control doesn't present any price advantage to smaller systems (that I am aware of).

Size. I can fit a 150/2.8 mFT lens + body in carry on. For me it's all about size.
