After a fast zoom lens - does it exist?

Hi everyone,

I don't need to tell you how important it is to have a wide open aperture when shooting video (on most occasions) - that's unless you want to have to crank the ISO up and get loads of noise and grain.

I've been searching for a zoom lens that is also fast (f/1.8 or 2) - but I can't find one. I can of course find prime lenses with a low f-number, but the same can't be said for a zoom lens. Even a 50-85mm or something would do. It needs to be a zoom lens to give me the flexibility to get different shots and control DOF etc.

Am I asking to much?
