Sony FE Pancake Lens, an Unmet Need for a (More) Compact System

The Sony FE lens collection is in need of a short and small pancake style lens. An ultra compact lens on the A7 series bodies would let us comfortably fit the camera in our pockets and bring it anywhere.

Anyone else waiting for Sony to release a pancake lens?

I have the 35mm 2.8. It's small and light, but the lens hood adds extra length to the lens. For some stupid reason you can't use the lens cap without the hood. Ideally, a pancake lens would be even shorter than the 35mm.

I'd love for sony to release something like the Canon EF 40mm 2.8 pancake. It's a great street photography focal length and less than 1" long. Or even an FE version of the Sony E 16mm 2.8.

Sony, let us combine your compact fullframe mirrorless bodies with an ultra compact lens to create a camera system we can take anywhere.
