My wish list: more pancake please

  • 30mm f/1.8

  • 50mm f/1.8

  • 85mm f/1.8

  • 100mm f/2

  • 200mm f/2.8 ( not pancake, but as short as possible )

Basic physics - the 30mm could possibly be compact lens (not pancake but compact and significantly bigger then the Samsung - the combiination camera + lens can be similar size though).

The rest of your list will be pretty big pieces of glass - nothing like a pancake - simply cannot be physically made to use APS-C sensor fit on NEX and be pancakes.

Pentax K has lots of pancakes but they have added 1 inch ( about 25mm) to their mount compared to NEX - Sony have to include this in the lens.

I agree that Sony can still strive to make more compact lens.
