Why no 400mm f/4 prime?

I'm not in the market for a super tele yet, but browsing around today got me thinking. I would think a 400mm f/4 would be a big seller if the optics were great, and certainly it would be far cheaper than the 400 f/2.8.

Perhaps they wouldn't want it competing with the 200-400mm f/4, as it might be close to that lens in price?

Just wondering.....
