If I were a Canon FF or even APSC user (I was an APSC user once), I would never consider such a slow long lens. For wildlife, shooting under the sun doesn't result in the most flattering images, I like shooting in overcast days to avoid the contrasty shadows. For sports, the shutter speed would be too slow. This would make these lenses pointless to me. Why they didn't go with f/8 is beyond me. Still slow, but with the DO optics, they still can be reasonably small.

What are you going to do in the m43 world then? There isn't a m43 400 faster than f5.6 which is exactly the same as f11 on FF. You want faster than that lens then you can get it in FF, but not in m43 as nothing exists. These are reasonably priced, reasonably sized lenses. They give FF shooters an alternative to the bigger, faster, heavier and more expensive super teles which are readily available if desired.
