Finally got angry about lack of 35mm equivalent

Re: Don't bother getting angry...

Well for one, I could see expanding the end-glass outward just a bit more - it would bulge out just a bit from the lens body, but not as drastically as an UWA lens typically does...and would allow more room inside the body to expand the element size. Even adjusting the lens' length and diameter a fraction if need be - it doesn't need to be a dead match for the 16mm lens size, as I don't think anyone would complain if they could get an F2 lens with a pancake body that stretches 2mm or 3mm more.

Plus, at 20mm focal, the curvature of the elements should be less than that of the 16mm, so achieving F2 in roughly the same size body might be a little easier with the longer focal.
