Why does NX have 3 pancakes and NEX only the bad 16?

I see now some reviews for the NX pancakes as "excellent". They have 30mm, 20mm, 16mm 2.4.

What is going on?

Doesn't Sony see that m4/3 bestsellers are pancakes? That the whole point of m4/3, NX, NEX, etc., is smaller size?

I see the panasonic 20mm 1.7 keeping up just fine with the Panasonic Leica 25mm 1.4

Is Sony about to make a monumental mistake like Nikon did with that small sensor?

Nobody wants to see a huge lens glued to a 200 gram camera. Pancakes are the key to success.

And the Sony 16mm gets too many blurr units in the slr gear review.

Yes it is nice to see large lenses like the Zeiss, but somebody should have told Nikon something about that little sensor.

So Sony, without pancakes people will leave you like Ashton left Demi.
