I love my 12-40 Mark I as it is. Optically it is a gem.

For me I would much prefer to see Mark II versions of the 12mm, 17mm, 25mm and 45mm f1.8 lenses with slightly better optical performance (especially the 17mm) and full weather sealing for all. I would forego OIS or faster aperture in the interest of maintaining small size and weight. Oh, and the Mark II versions would come equipped with lens hoods.

I agree. My 12-40 is hard to fault. But I want a small, fast prime that is weathersealed for travel. I'd love to see a new 17mm f/2 pancake with decent IQ, but a revamp of the 17/1.8 would do.
