Re: Panasonic has learned how to make quality small lenses?

It's a collapsible pancake zoom.

It's way smaller than the Olympus version so its more than just a collapsible zoom. Actually the pancake zoom is only a bit bigger than the 20mm pancake from Olympus.

I think the recent 14-42 pancake "X" lens shows that Panasonic has learned a thing or two about miniaturization of lenses.

The new 14-42 is not a pancake lens. It's a collapsible lens.
