Not sure how to link to it directly, but it's on the front page right now:

I would have liked to see the wide range get to f/2.8 or maybe even a static aperture, but I suspect the size of that lens would have been undesirable.

My bet is that SAR got it wrong about the "G" designation, and they're using the wrong, older roadmap. I'd wager that this zoom lens we're hearing about is simply the "standard zoom" that we see on this year's roadmap, and the G zoom will be coming next year.
