A really new zoom

A new standard zoom that I'd really to see for Pentax is the equivalent to the Sony Zeiss 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5. A great range and avoids the usual f/5.6 at the end. Make it WR please. Other makes have also their 16-85mm and I think that is really missing in Pentax mount. I know the 17-70mm is supposed to cover this but IMHO Pentax made a big mistake by not making it WR. The Zeiss is also the equivalent to the Olympus 12-60mm which is also highly regarded. That's the zoom I'd like to see before a 16-50 v2.
