May be the older lenses 18mm, 35mm, 60mm will be improved with faster, quieter focusing? I just hope they don't make them bigger and heavier.

It would do them no harm to keep the optics, update the motors and make them weatherproof.

They may update the 18mm optics as I hear it is not well regarded for edge-edge sharpness.
If they could update the motors and get really good AF that would be great. But I did see a quote from Fuji that for the 35mm they could have halved the AF time by going for a different optical formula.  With the current 35mm all lens element are moved during focus which makes it slower due to weight.  They chose that optical design for the excellent IQ/bokeh and I for one would not want to lose that.
