There's also a 15mm f8 'body cap lens' that is no bigger than a body cap, but more of a toy than precision lens.

Calling the Sigma 30/2.8 a pancake is stretching it a bit in my opinion. The lens is nearly 40 mm long. Pretty compact, but hardly a pancake. No trouble with the rest of your summary.

I would`t call the 14-42 a pancake.

I`d call the Sigma 30mm a good budget option that is still small enough even though its no pancake.
