Fuji tele lenses and rumors

Hi guys,

recently I came from Pentax. Currently I use X-T2, XF 90/2 and Zeiss Touit 32/1.8. I shoot mostly dog portraits and sometimes also some action stuff (also dogs, but also some general event stuff). I am very happy with both the XF 90/2 and Zeiss 32/1.8.

I would like to add some tele lens in the future too, mainly for action an general reach. I already got used to pro level optics that I love, thus I don´t like the 55-200/3.5-4.8 (and furthermore it is supposed not to be that fast focusing which is a deal breaker for me).

Currently the only possibilities are 50-140/2.8 (which would substitute my stellar 90/2) and 100-400/4.5-5.6, which has not very fast aperture, (furthermore is quite heavy, but that is not a deal breaker). In the end, I could actually get the 100-400, but if there was another ´better´ option, it would be great. All in all, I would need the 300-400mm reach very rarely, I guess. On Pentax I owned 50-135/2.8, which was short. I also had Sigma 70-200/2.8, which was very good, maybe a bit short. And also Pentax 60-250/4, which had useful range (300mm would be better but 250mm was OK). Something like 80-250/4 or 100-300/4, or 150mm + 1.4x TC would be brilliant 

Anyway, I read there will be a new 200/2, that should work with TCs and will cost about 6.000 USD. Well, that price I am not able to pay. Is there anything else that should come in some kind of tele range? Are there any rumors?

Opinions and relevant rumors highly appreciated!
