Panny, Oly, Canon, and others all prove it's 'possible', even the 16mm Sony NEX lens which I pointed out seems to prove it's 'possible' - but performance and IQ must become secondary to lens size. Same rule goes for pancakes - design and size become the primary focus, and IQ and performance become secondary. It's the nature of the beast. Performance and IQ might still end up being very good even being secondary, or might not.

Well put. The focus, indeed, appears to be more on cosmetics than IQ or even an understanding of the purpose.

And even when it comes to maximum aperture, it make absolutely no sense to compromise "landscape f-stops" that many of these folks aren't even considering (and that ties back to IQ being secondary).
