Pancakes for smaller m4/3rds bodies.
Jun 3, 2013

Two new Panasonic smaller camera bodies are coming down the pipe - the "GX7," and a smaller one later in the year or early next year. Olympus bodies are also mostly smaller.

Panasonic has produced two pancakes for the m4/3rds system, and they help to make the smaller cameras pocketable. For example mMy GF1 with the 20mm is very handy.

I would like an 8 or 9 or 10mm rectilinear pancake for my camera. I also am interested in what FLs other people think we need in fast pancake lenses for the smaller m4/3rds bodies; and to be realistic, what the practical obstacles to creating such lenses might be.
