In micro 4/3 do folk talk in terms of 35mm full frame equivalent or the a dual focal length before adding the mag factor?

Yes that is the Olympus pro lens that I used for my work. I paid $1,300 CAD for it back in 2007/2008.

I am not a spokesman for micro 4/3 LOL. but I always think of the effect that I will get from my lenses, in the equivalent of the look I know I would get with that focal length on my 35mm Olympus film cameras (with that lens 100-400mm). But when I talk about the lens, I refer to the micro 4/3 designation (with that lens 50-200). As a Canadian I am used to thinking in both metric and imperial measurements - so it’s not a big deal for me.
