A 30-35mm "normal" pancake with a max aperture of 2.8 or 3.5 (or even 4!). Plastic is fine. No close-focus capability is fine. I'd even take it without OSS. Slight vignetting? I don't care! Just give me a cheap, small, capable lens to toss on when poster-sized prints aren't a possibility on the table.

I have a lot of lenses for my DSLRs. When I need the absolute best I can have it.

It seems like I'm completely missing out on the benefits of the small form factor by having no tiny lens to go along with it in my most-used focal length.

Were Sony to give me a tiny normal prime, I would sing the praises of the NEX system from the hilltops. As it is I'm singing from the lowlands.

Yes! Like you, I use the NEX mostly because the size. For everything "serious", I'm more comfortable with my SLT camera.

A 30/35mm pancake and a 60/85mm f2.8 of the size of the sigma 30, it's all what I need.
