Only option for telephoto (let's say 200 f4) is from Panasonic, correct?

I am mostly asking this to make sure that I am not overlooking something. I love my L mount camera, and I do take my photography seriously. However, $1700 is still tough for me to justify the Panasonic 70-200 f4.

I know I had a thread a while back talking about Sigma rumors, and if they will have an option. Can anything think of something that I am overlooking? If nothing else, will I have to "resort" to adapting another lens (DSLR version) to the L mount?

Not really an issue, I suppose because I want to use it for portraits. My only reservation there would be size. (I've tried a Samyang lens with the body and the lens was huge)

Anyway, forgive the seemingly random post. Just wondering if I missed something or if someone is more creative than I am with thinking about what would work.
