Why no 40mm pancake (or similar)?

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

Thanks Tom,

Beautiful examples!

I have ordered the Meike 28mm f/2.8 pancake, which was suggested to me elsewhere in this topic. That is a real pancake (29mm long), so we know that 28-30mm is possible on MFT.

I still hope that a cunning lens design team can stretch that somewhat into the 30's range. The closer we approach 40mm, the happier I am (as long as they do not fall back to a collapsible lens that extends more than say 5mm).
