What other tiny sized primes are available for 4/3?

12mm f/2 Olympus

14mm f/2.5 Panasonic

The 15mm f/8 lens cap from Olympus, cant be more tiny sized that this !

Both 17mm from Olympus (pancakes)

20mm f/1.7 Panasonic

Arguably the 25mm f/1.4 Leica

Some third party lenses like the Jackar 34mm f/1.8 (native MFT lens) and various pinhole lens caps

and this 45mm from Olympus.

I would say not a bad panel of lenses here. One can build a classic 24-50-90 set of primes and cover most situations with a tiny, light package.

I agree about the 12mm, 14mm, 17mm and 20mm . . . but the Panny 25mm is not a small lens. Excellent, yes, but not small.
