Re: Why no 40mm pancake (or similar)?

Thanks. enossified pointed that out in a response below as well.

I just compared the optical designs of the Pentax 70mm with the Panasonic 20mm, and it seems that the Pentax has 6 elements, while the Panasonic has at least 7. Both are real pancake designs (no trickery in the Pentax). Interesting...
