A 500mm lens on an m4/3 camera has a similar field of view as a 1000mm lens on a 35mm film camera. So your experience doesn't really compare until you add that 2x teleconverter.

Well, yes, if you are shooting at 400, but shooting at 3200, or even 1600, you can shoot at a faster shutter speed, resulting in less motion blur than w the film camera.
