I'm not sure how anyone can say a 5 ounce lens is too big.  They're no bigger than the 14-42 II.

That's a standard zoom....

The Panasonic 45 f/2.8 is 70% larger,

A Macro lens...

and the 25/1.4 is more than 3 times the size of these lenses (by weight or volume).


Other than pancake lenses, what is smaller?

Does it matter? The current Sigma offerings are not really worth it for m4/3. I understand that NEX users are very happy with the lenses because the have little. For m4/3 I don't really see a point.
