I'd be happy if they kept it the same focal length range and aperture range, but significantly improved the sharpness overall and especially in the corners/edges at 300mm wide open. With such limited aperture at 300mm wide open sharpness is paramount as most shots would be done at f/5.6.

Me too. What is needed is a 100-300 f/4-5.6 'X Vario' OIS, something with the build quality, sharpness, 4-stop IS and operational high performance of the Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS 'L' lens. The Canon L is $1,600, and a matching Panasonic HD would be worth that too.
