Good value WR lenses?

I don't have any 645 WR lenses and it seems like I should have at least one. My finances are a little tight at the moment but I'm interested to see what people consider the good value WR lenses for our cameras.

I was thinking that FA 55/2.8 is probably the one since it's a nice middle length and less expensive than the modern WR zooms.

But am I overlooking any other bargains that might be similarly good or better? I'll most likely buy via eBay or the marketplace. As much as I'm sure I would enjoy a 25mm or the 28-45 they just don't fit my current budget.

Thanks!

ive got the DFA 55 and the FA 25 when i need to stick to a WR lens (big wave splashing). The 55 would be very useful in many cases, IMO

Beyond the D-FA55, there aren't any WR lenses in the 'value' category for the 645.

Ok that is what I figured but I thought I'd check to be sure. Thanks!
Mike I'd love to have the 25 for my WR needs but I'm going to have to settle, at least for a little while! I have some pending sales that will help get me a little closer.
