Lens design is now gravitating towards image quality and not small size.

I'd love a small 35 equivalent. f/2 or so. Doesn't have to be a true pancake, but a 23/2 at the size of the old Sigma 30/2.8 would be great for me.

I 100% agree with you! My only prime lens is the Sigma 30/2.8, and I still use it. I got it new for $139 many years ago. If anyone ever makes a ~23/2 prime as sharp as is the Sigma 30/2.8, I would buy one, as long as it was released at a 'resonable' price.

Unfortunetly, I think all new high quality APS-C lenses (like the 16-55G without OSS) will be extremely over prices, especially if Sony makes it.
