If DA* means weatherproofing, then the FA Limiteds, so I don't have to worry when it rains...

Discontinue the FA limiteds and make them new DA WR (no SDM PLEASE) lenses... doesnt have to be fullframe, if it's cheaper than the current FA, all the better.

DA* 10/2.8 - F4 is fine too
DA* 150/2.8 Macro - 200/4 would be nice, but I probably couldn't afford it
DA* 400/5.6 - yes, F5.6, I want to take it for some backpacking... F4 would be to big/heavy

A 55-58 / 1.4 that renders like the A* 85/1.4 or a FA 77. The current 55 doesn't quite seem to have the magic.

you guys are nuts

why bother asking for replacements for perfectly good primes we have now?

16/2? never gonna happen, take either the 14/2.8 or 15/4.

or what's wrong with the 16-50 2.8? it's only a stop slower, a rather inconsequential difference for an ultra wide

"discontinue the fa limiteds ... doesn't have to be full frame"

hellooooo? da limiteds anyone?

seriously

I'd like to see DA* equivalents of the FA limiteds. Since size doesn't seem to matter with regard to the DA* lenses, having sealed versions of the 31, 43, 77, and even the 85. Sure they'd be expensive, but so are they currently.

While the price is much lower for the DA ltds i would prefer the extra stop you get with the FA ltds.
That said i still cant afford any of the FA ltds and the next lens on my mind is definately the DA 70mm ltd which you can get fair cheap down under
