Re: 16mm pancake?

The lens is better (in the corners) on the 16 mp sensors than the 14 mp sensors due to the better micro-lenses for wide angle and wide aperture lenses. It's also better on the 5N and other models with lens correction profiles, as it gets rid of some of the distortion (or you can do this in post processing). It's apparently even better with the converters attached.

Bottom line, the lens is perfectly useable, so long as the photographer knows how to use it. The portability, speed, and cost make it a great lens for the right uses. The pictures many have posted show this, despite what charts and reviews might show (although some shots show how you shouldn't use the lens, as well).
