I was wondering if we had such a lens for the micro fourthirds system, would the lens be any smaller than the one for the fourthirds system. Or would they just be of a similar size?

Similar size. The size is dictated by the need for a front element 107.143 mm in diameter.

The 300mm f2.8 worked fine on an E-P1 with a 4/3 to m4/3 adaptor when I tried it the other day. It focused faster than the 50-200 SWD, too.

Crucifies the little battery on the pen though! I have tried this more for comic value than in anger...
