a pancake lens satisfies one need of Nex shooters: Small weight and size - the other one however: Wide apertures for getting shallow DOF is not adressed by this lens, specially at the long end for portraits where it is f5,6.

Totally agree. It's such a shame that people who buy this lens are stuck using it forever. If only NEX cameras had some sort of interchangeable lens mount system so you could mount on different lenses for different needs...
