They have but a 35/28/24mm first, then the 50 1.4 then a 85 or 135 and then a 20/24 1.4 or something.

I hope one or all the primes are Limited. I would prefer WR, but I won't be picky.

They won't be. Maybe they will keep on producing the limiteds for a while or put HD coating and rounded aperture blades in them. Ricoh will focus on mainstream glass to be more like Canikony.

their 85mm f1.4 and 135mm f1.8 are top notch, if they revive these two, it'd be awesome (prefer 135mm as 85mm is too close to my FA77 )

What do you have against "rounded" aperture blades?? The aperture blades in those Soviet lenses that are so highly valued are seriously curved.

Nothing much but they should at least make then so the aperture isn't rounded any more from a certain aperture so you can make a decent starburst pic.

Just come right and say it, they make people's noses look big.
Blessed are the Big Noses. That doesn't mean it's bad. Even for DSLR selfies....



Definitely can't be used to shoot people.
