The amount you mention could also buy a used Nikon V2 + CX 70-300. Very capable at BIF, as illustrated in Thomas Stirr's blog.
Not as good in low light as the best/latest M43 models, but then it is also less expensive and offers good AF and 15fps. - Coming from a bridge superzoom, I was satisfied with its low-light performance. I am sure DSLR guys expect better quality.
