This is the lens I'm still waiting for. Based on the patent, it looks to be about 1.2" (vs the 40mm pancake that's 0.9"). I wonder if they're delaying it due to the loss in sales of the 50 1.2 that'll most definitely happen to some degree. I mean, I'd consider getting the 50 1.2 right now if there was no 1.8 pancake rumor.

Here is a quick size comparison. EF 50 1.4 on the left, RF 35 1.8 STM in the middle, EF 40mm pancake with EF-RF adapter on the right.. Shot using an EL-100 flash bounced straight up.

EF 50mm 1.4 v. RF 35mm 1.8 v EF 40mm 2.8 with EF-RF adapter size comparison.
