Re: 45mm f/1.8 not a pancake...ugh.

The new Samsung 45 mm f/1.8 could maybe be made a pancake, but maybe they thought it compromised performance too much or maybe the lens design forces a longer overall length.

It's unfortunate, IMO. I only take my Samsung to places where I can't get a conventional DSLR in and sometimes it just barely passes by security with a pancake. I'd never carry it with a larger lens. I was really hoping to add a 45mm pancake, but I guess I'll just keep using the 30mm. Not a hardship. I like the 30mm a lot. A little more reach woulda been nice, but whatever.
