One possible solution is the Olympus 'Super High Grade' 300mm f4 prime which is scheduled to be released in 2015.

This will not be small and light, and it will be rather expensive. However, I can't wait for it to arrive, as this is just what is required for bird photography. (See Stevehuffphoto.com for details).

However, it presumably won't have in lens IS but will be designed for IBIS, so not usable for many Pany users (and personally I need a zoom for wildlife, and I'd live with f4/5.6)
