But if we had a faster sharper prime, it would be game over. It doesn't even need to be longer than 300mm, and it doesn't even really need to be that fast. Just sharper. Of course the other things wouldbe nice too though

I am with you on this. Particularly if a slower but sharp lens was significantly lighter than the 2+ pounds I would expect for a 300mm f4. I would pay $800 for a 300 f5.6 if it had good IS, was razor sharp wide open and weighed 1.5 pounds or less.

Indeed.  My thinking exactly.  Soft images bother me more than noisy ones, so I could live with a sharp f/5.6, especially if it wasn't huge.
