Fuji releasing more WR PRIME lenses

Fuji has updated it's lens roadmap and the XF 23/2 WR and XF50/2 WR and XF80 Macro WR are on the pipeline, what do you think of these? Pentax forte is WR but it it is not releasing any WR primes with FL shorter than the DA*55, the DA kit lens is WR but meh, I know Fuji does not have entry level WR camera. What are your thoughts?

I to compare WR primes from both systems

I would rather wait for a good WR prime than have them rush it to market and have dissatisfied users as a result. Pentax are dooooooomed! if they do and dooooooooomed! if they don't, but if that's the case then at least let us be dooooomed! with good glass on our cameras.

What about the HD DA 20-40 and 16-85? They're WR and better than meh.

New prime lenses are in the roadmap of 2017, i believe most (if not all) are going to be WR. Idk about how fast, but i expect a mix of DFA and DFA* on the next few years, so far im fault of one UWA for my K1 and im waiting the Irix 15mm WR lens.

The thing with WR primes is you have to change them. WR zooms make more sense for the most part.

On the one hand I would love to get my hands on the 21, 35 and 40 limited primes, but on the other hand I live in Scotland.

I'm currently using the 35/2.8 Limited Macro on APS-C, and if they brought out an HD WR redo of the D-FA50/2.8 Macro I would strongly consider it for the K-1 to keep approximately the same FOV. Mind you, it should be fun to see what the 35 is like in full-frame mode; at the distances I mostly shoot it at, it shouldn't be a problem.
