Comparing lens sizes (10, 11-27.5, 10-30, 30-110)
Aug 10, 2012

Thanks to 'The Skipper' for the link to in other post I did not have that site in my bookmarks!

I wanted to see the new 11-27.5 compared to the current pancake 10mm and the kit 10-30...threw in the 30-110 just to compare main lenses (did not include the high dollar movie zoom lens). I used the J1 even though I have V1 simply to focus on the lenses. Here is the link:,124.358,124.41,124.43,ha,t

And here are the results with a straight edge at the top to help show differences:

Per tech specs it looks like the new lens is .32in(9mm) longer than the 10mm lens and .48in(11mm) shorter than the 10-30 kit lens. The new lens is about the same weight or just a little more than the 10mm. Just posting for others in case they want a visual between the other pancake and the existing kit zooms as that is what I was needing.

I like the idea of a pancake zoom - but like others wish there was more news than this one lens and a J2 with better display. I am a gullible optimist so looking forward to see what's ahead for this niche group but at the same time empathize with those that are frustrated. Here's hoping for the best
