You missed the point. The point is that a fast, small pancake can be made and, in fact, exists and the Voigtlander is even for FF. Some have said that they are not possible and that is why Sony doesn't make any. Also, check out the Samsung 30mm f2:

Pancake lenses are usually not very fast, the negative lens elements are hard to adjust, but Sony sure could make them.

However, a camera as slim as the Nex is a lot harder to work with when you design lenses, due to the short flange distance; a 40mm pancake for a DSLR is fairly easy to make - yet that Voigtlander 40mm isn't a very small lens, either .

The trouble is that noone knows where Sony is going with the Nex line; I assume we'll have to wait for the Nex-7 announcement , the Nex-3C is really confusing things for me .

Right now, Sony seems to have it's releases backwards, apart from the (rumored) 1.7/24 .
