Will Sony consider creating light long telephotos like 500mm?

I’m a Sony Alpha 1 ( and many other bodies ) shooter where my longest lenses are the 200-600 and 100-400. I don’t own an FE 600mm f/4 GM. I have my longer lenses for wildlife an BIF.

I’ve been playing around with the Nikon Z system some and surprised by the prime PF and other lenses they have created that are smaller and lighter and than anything Sony or Canon appear to have. Theses include their 300

I know Sony’s 400/2.8, 600/4, and 200-600 are all great lenses but the are not very light and a challenge to hand hold. Especially as I get older. Does anyone know if Sony have any Developments in this area? While I know these light primes are usually a stop slower the reduced weight seems like a reasonable trade off for better hand holding.
