Could I use a pancake lens such as Sony E 16mm f/2.8 to achieve more portability?

Albeit more expensive total solution, but I have this amateur's hang-up on the APS-C since everyone says the sensor is so important.

Or are pancake lenses really not as versatile as 18-55mm lenses?


Pancakes don't zoom (except with your feet).  In addition, the pancake nature of the lens (thin), introduces some compromises in design and resulting image quality (usually, and in the case of the Sony 16mm).
