Is a 9-18mm Mark II inevitable?

14-42mm had a remake, as well as the 40-150, and now the 75-300.  Is anyone else expecting an announcement soon for a 9-18mm MII?  From what it looks like, these newer versions are exactly the same optics, but look prettier and are of lesser build quality to the point of actually reducing the price somewhat.  IMO, a sub $400 9-18mm should sell like hotcakes!

I might be in the minority here, but I think cheaper MII versions should be done to more than these zoom lenses.  12, 17, 75 MII... all in 45/1.8 build quality (and price), oh happy day!
