I honestly don't get the appeal of the 50ish mm focal length- i think the only reason why 50mm lenses are popular with DslrS is because they're typically cheap and very fast at around less than $200, but mirrorless cams being more expensive all around compared to DSLRs, I don't think the price will be that cheap, maybe $300 at the cheapest. i would rather see a different focalIlength, like one of pentax's 70mm ish primes.

I seem to stick with focal length I am used to. When I started taking photos with Praktica cameras I had the Carl Zeiss Jena 1.8 80mm. When I switched to Nikon, I had the Nikkor 1.8 85mm. Now I want a similar lens and for Samsung that would be 1.8 55. I like these lenses for a more concentrated view, ability to isolate because of limited depth of field and good portrait capability. So I really would love the 1.8 55 pancake to become true.
