Hand held M3 with tele lens?

I'm a current M(1) and T2i user, and have been contemplating going with either a M3 or SL1 as my one and only ILC.  I have plans of going to Yellowstone next June, and plan to rent a tele lens(100-400mm, 70-300mm --both L lenses, or the Tamron 150-600mm).  So just how practical would such a lens be if attached to a M3?  I would use a tripod when I could, but need to ask this question for when setting up a tripod would not be practical.

OR would the SL1 be much more able to handle those quick pick-up-and-shoot grab shots?

KIndly restrict your references to only the gear (cameras and lenses) mentioned here.

Thanks
