Then there's Canon STM 40mm 2.8 which, even though it's a pancake, is supposed to be one of the sharpest lenses in all of Canon's lineup. Of course it doesn't work so hot on micro four thirds, but it still demonstrates what's possible with a pancake and not a lot of money.

Same could be said for the 20/1.7... and it didn't take a lot of money, at least not until demand and the yen shot through the roof.

I think the price of the 15/8 really makes little sense in lieu of the 14/2.5 however.  Not unless you need the slimmest package of all, or are after that specific "look."
