Why no 40mm pancake (or similar)?

Re: Thanks for your suggestion!

Astrotripper and you mentioned this lens. I was unaware of its existence. It has a native mount (so no lengthening by adding an adapter), which makes it even more interesting. This lens seems to have been designed for APS-C, so I would suppose that Panasonic or Olympus could design an even smaller version of it (although a focus motor would need room somewhere...).

I read that It comes in at 102 grams, and the price is very low. The few reviews I have found are favorable. I have no problems with MF, as I like the implementation in the GM1 very much (far far better than the E-M5), because it has a dedicated MF-button and a clear way to judge focus with the magnifier and the focus.

Thanks for your suggestion and thanks for sharing a photo of the lens on your camera, which enabled me to judge its size. I will order one.

Now, if they will create a 40mm version of this, I am really sold!
