Why not a small F6.7 prime?
1

Many landscape photographers shoot at F8 or F11 so why not release a F6.7 prime in the 12-16mm focal range? Similarly, many street photographers shoot at F8 and zone focus so why not release a F5.6 or F6.7 prime in the 18-35mm range? Perhaps I am wrong but wouldn't it be easier to reduce the size of the lens and to get a more even optical performance this way?
