Holes in Pentax prime line up

Now that Pentax stepped-up and is offering the 70-200mm, what lenses would you like to see round up the lens line-up. I'm basically talking about prime lenses, but I mentioned the 70-200 because of it's popularity with photographers. I was thinking maybe a 135mm f2 Limited(made of steel).

Fast 16mm and 18mm for APSc, fast 24mm for FF (FA31Ltd can replace 28mm on FF).

Failing that, maybe Ricoh can mine Pandora for unobtainium.

I second the need for ultra fast 1.4 lenses and a DFA* 85.

Even if Pentax decided to never releases another f1.4 lens, I'd be OK with it.

A 120-150mm prime in the vein of DAs 35/2.4 and 50/1.8, a talented minimalist bargain for all.

A weather-sealed pancake somewhere in the normal-to-wide range. That would be awesome.

I agree with 135..or any decent one, really. (Except for the ones I already own) The problem is budget..but that is a different story..
