Prosume Primes?

Just wondering if there any rumours of Prosumer primes coming out? Right now Nikon has their line of amazing 1.4 primes, but are there any rumours of something a little less... ridiculous?

I think it'd be great if they brought out some new FF f1.8 or f2 primes priced closer to $500. It has to be doable. I know there is the 35/2 out right now but this seems a little dated (although I've never tried it).

Ideally I'd be down for a 50/1.2 (I'd be willing to pay more for that), a FF 35/1.8 (very unlikely with the DX one out there I know) and a 28/2 or 28/1.8, with magnesium build. Something halfway between goldring than 50/1.8 and 35/1.8 that are currently available. More in line with the 24-120/4.

Any rumours for this kind of stuff? Any one else want something simlar?
