Pancake is a compromise, it can't make a good picture and will lost a battle with top smartphones. Lenses those can resolve full APS-C matrix can't be small.

Let’s see, the Samyang 24 2.8 weighs 95g, apparently it’s a superb optic, along with the 18 2.8, also 145g only, so these are not flat pancake designs but they aren’t huge lenses either by any means!

Pair them with the a65/6600 and you have a fully stabilised compact system, who else offers this outside m43?

You are talking about fixes, this is another story.

These are designed only for fe mount, hardly a fix
