Interesting thought.
Current prices on FA 35 and 50 already is a failure. The 50 is worth more than it costed previously, but the new price is way too much.

Anything less, does not have to mean worse. E.g. you can build a DA only lens - smaller imaging circle etc - makes easier to build lens as wide as 35mm. If it has good sharpness and nice build it would not be a failure for adequate price.
Besides, FA lens does not have quick shift - it's almost like L lens in DA terms. So it already is less than anything current.
Why people are afraid of plastic mounts so much? There are more important things, like AF gear material e.g. I dont swap my lenses between every shot. I think sometimes metal wears much faster than plastic.

if a 30mm DAL prime comes out ~$200 I would get it right away. I don't need an original hood and I just want it light.
