I'm not sure if you follow 4/3rds or not, but Olympus felt a similar way with their HG and SHG lenses with f/2.0.  There were a lot of complainers about how 2.0 made the lenses just as big as their full frame 2.8 counterparts.  I for one, didn't mind because I loved the idea of competitive f/2.0 lenses.  So maybe they don't want to repeat the same(I wouldn't say mistake) demand projection and keep the lenses small.
