The whole WR concept falls apart radically at the moment you change the lens for an alternate focal length. It wouldn't surprise me, therefore, if we never see WR in anything other than a zoom lens.

Sounds reasonable, hadn't thought of that - although even if you have a 18-55 WR zoom, you might want to put on a longer zoom sometime. If I've checked correctly, the Pentax WR line "only" goes up to 200 mm.

One prime WR lens would be good enough for me, but I guess I'm not representative of the market.
