Let me disagree. At the same ISO setting, the image shot by a 300mm m4/3 lens on a m4/3 camera will be exactly the same as the one taken by a 600mm FF lens on a FF camera when both apertures are set to F/6,7.

No it won't. The FF image will have shallower DOF.

Yes you're right. But beside DOF, the picture will have the same angle of view and same bightness (which was the main point of the discussion, I think).
