Bearing in mind that they're both pancakes, virtually the same size and with only a 1mm difference, what your "quite different lenses" statement above implies is that the real difference is the challenge of mating lenses like these to an APS-C sized sensor.

Do you have any photography experience?? These lenses are VERY different because they have a very different field of view. That is FAR more important than the rather irrelevant factors that you mention.
