Thanks Erik. I'll look for other lens. I hoped to get this range of a pancake lens, about the 20mm fl.

Don't wait, it's not going to happen. Pancake design is only practical for focal length that is similar to the distance from mount flange to sensor. That's 44mm for EF/EF-S mount cameras.

You might find a ~28mm EF-S pancake in the future, making use of that extra space the EF-S mount allows. Wouldn't hold my breath for it though.
