However, this conflicts with the main strength of m43, which is small and light.

That should read: "smaller and lighter". And a 300mm f/4 lens will be a lot smaller and lighter than the 600mm lens that gives an equivalent field of view on a full frame camera.

True, but it won't be all that much smaller and lighter than a 400mm f/4 lens mounted on an APS-C DSLR.

It's only 75% of the focal length.   That's really very close to the 67% of the focal length that the 400mm APS-C lens is compared to its 600mm full frame equivalent.

If it's a good thing to loose 1/3 of length (and even more of the volume and the weight) in going from DSLR to APS-C, then why isn't it worth loosing an additional 1/4 in going to M43?
