Default fast/wide prosumer/consumer zooms?

Been keenly looking on the net at the new Nikon Coolpix 5400 soon to be released. What attracts me is the 28mm wide end of its 28-115mm equivalent zoom. Not many digital compacts around with that kind of scope. However, I've heard that the Coolpix 5000 which has nearly the same f2.8 lens has trouble focusing in low light. Whereas there are cams around with f2.0 zooms lenses (Canon G2,G3, Sony DSC-S85, Olympus C-5050) which are noted for their low light performance, but which don't go wider than equivalent 35mm without fussing about getting add-on lenses and adapters.
I know that wide-angles aren't typically super-fast, but does anyone know if such a cam is planned or on the horizon - with say a 28 - 115mm f2.0 lens for example? This would be right up my street. Any answers/ insights appreciated..
