I used to think that as well, because neither Panasonic nor Olympus went beyond 20mm, but then I realized that Canon makes the 40mm pancake. If they can do it, why would the masters of lens size reduction not be able to do so?

Pentax makes a line of crêpe-thin lenses that make the 20mm and 14 f2.5 look obese.

Even if you added a 20mm adapter that Pentax 40mm would still be pretty close to a pancake.

Also 9mm lens cap lens is also tiny.

Maybe a new campaign, for a return to the roots and a range of small cheap lens. I reckon the pros have enough mft lens to save up for !
