It's no real pancake lens, because...where is the cake?
Let me suggest to name it "The Pinhole", which comes closest.


PS. I am curious and am going to get one.

No - It's a three element three group 15mm lens (presumable a Cooke triplet) with two focus positions IE. close-up (30mm) and 1m to infinite. A very common arrangement to those older enough to remember inexpensive compact 35mm cameras of the past (or even roll film and 1/4 Plate!). It weighs in at 20 grams and its 9mm deep. I brilliant idea but it may not suit my GH2 but is it would many GF, GX series as well of course any Pen for grab shots in good light.

The Olympus UK web site has all the details.
