Maybe if you're dead set on a mirrorless and don't trust Sony's future lens lineup, then it could be a consideration.

The 22mm f2 lens is very nice, something that Sony doesn't have. Their pancake is 16mm f2.8, which is way too wide (24mm equivalent) for normal use, and f2.8 is slower.

22 f2 is a great pancake to start off with and a better one than Nex. As an M43 user I do wonder how much better off you are really. We started with the 20/1.7 pancake from Pana a few years back which really isnt a whole lot different given the 2.0 v 1.6 sensor size.

Meanwhile your standard zoom - 18-55 3.5-5.6 (28-88 5.6-9.0) - is about the same size of our latest - 12-35 2.8 (24-70 - 5.6).,315.336,ha,t

While a standard zoom has shrunk to half the size....,351.348,ha,t
