There aren't. Just look at the existing f/2.8 zoom offerings. Compare in size and price with your "slow" 18-200 zoom. Now envision a zoom lens, letting in 4x more light than the f/2.8 zooms ... Size, handling and price would probably make such a lens a practical impossibility.

Don't be obsessed by f/1.4 is my 2 cents. You'll get better, cheaper blur by increasing the focal length. Go tele ...
