To start with, Good High quality, fast lenses are large (for APS sized sensors that is)

Here is the Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f2 pancake for FF SLRs:

I wonder if it was for APS-C and for NEX instead of an SLR if it could be even smaller or maybe the same size?

that lens is for an SLR mount, ie. it will take a full size adapter (ie. add 25+mm or so). It is 'pancake' for SLR, but it is similar in size to the SEL1855 when mounted on the NEX.

The similar lens for rangefinder cameras is about 30mm long, plus the adapter (M-> NEX) making it more than a 35mm protrusion, again SEL1855-like.

See the 35mm mounted on NEX, it is not much shorter than the SEL1855 and much heaver (see my other reply in this thread too).
