That will always be the case, until someone comes out w that compact, ultra light 7-350mm F2.8 ultrazoom.

Why can't it be 1.4?!

Because the aperture at f/1.4 is twice as wide as f/2.8 so the volume of glass goes up by 2 x 2 x 2 = 8X.  That stops it being compact and ultra light.  And the design of zooms like that it virtually impossible with even moderate IQ.

I know that: it was a joke. Sheesh!

there are some very serious people on this Forum.

Very serioius.
