There appears to be growing popularity for the older lighter screwdriver lenses 20, 24, 50, etc.,

I haven't seen any such "growing popularity" myself.  According to the serial numbers shown at Roland Vink's site, for example, Nikon's already sold more 14-24mm f/2.8's, than they sold 20mm f/2.8D's even though the cheaper, lighter lens has been on the market for about 3 times as long.

I miss the days when I used to be nostalgic.
