I would prefer a weather-proof DA* lens with a modern internal focusing motor. The lack of a weather-sealed prime shorter than 55mm is a serious omission, IMO. Would definitely NOT be cheap, however.

I totally agree. There are only 2 small gaps in the current lineup of special (LTD or SDM or */WR) lenses:

DA 15 ltd
DA 21 ltd
--> DA*26 SDM (WR)
FA 31 ltd
DA 35 macro ltd
DA 40 ltd
FA 43 ltd
--> DFA 50 macro WR
DA*55 SDM (WR)
DA 70 ltd
FA 77 ltd
DFA 100 macro WR
DA* 200 (WR)
DA* 300 (WR)

But the size/weight-advantage of primes is gone if you buy all of them

And the WR-advantage is useless if you have to change prime lenses every minute.
