Ideally want a zoom up to 300mm, with f2.8 (or better).
but may be tempted by something else.

Just need a good price really

I think you need to have a look at what's out there and re-evaluate what you're looking for, the spec you're asking for (zoom, up to 300mm, f2.8 ) is either vitually non existent or astronomically expensive (Sigma do a 200-500mm f2.8 for £15,000). You could commission Zeiss to make you one (it's not unheard of for them to do this), but you'd probably be looking at the price of a nice house for one.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Sigma do a 120-300mm f 2.8 around 1900 new !
there 100-300 f4 is pretty good though
