Why no 40mm pancake (or similar)?

Re: It might all be about the economics

Agreed. I stated something along these lines here . I fully understand that I am in the minority.

But the same logic applies when you look at the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 and the Olympus 17mm f/2.8. The Pana-Leica 15mm and the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 make more sense to most customers. Still, these pancakes have been developed and especially the Panasonic 14mm is a real gem (I like the rendering and colors of the 17mm f/2.8 too, by the way). The order of development might have had some influence ;-). Incidentally, I own(ed) all four. Only the 17mm f/1.8 has been sold. The Pana-Leica 15mm lives on my Olympus E-M5 - although I am silently crying each time I look at the aperture ring.
