E systems users BEGGED Olympus for something like you mention.  Nothing.  The 300 2.8 was too big and costly.  All we got was the lousey 70~300 f 5.6, which was basically a consumer grade lens.  Useful and cheap but not a very good lens.  What we asked for and never got was a 300mm f 4 (or possibly a 100~300 f 4 zoom) that was built to HG (High Grade) standards.

There's a rumor that they are planning a long lens (may be on the "roadmap") and I hope they deliver.  The current little zoom is OK but overpriced and not optically great from what I've seen.  I know everybody who has one will blast me for saying that, but based on reviews and tests I've seen it's only average.  I hope Oly listens this time.
