    I just noticed the B&H entry for the Pentax 40 mm XS pancake for the K01:
    Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 XS Lens 22137 B&H Photo Video

    $250 and the size of a slice of salami. I'm very impressed with the images I've seen taken with it. Of course, the APS-C body is a brick. The NEX bodies are svelte but the lenses are big enough to make Freud insecure. Why, oh why?

    NEX lenses need a bigger offset since the body isn't a brick. Simple...
    (wishful thinking aside of course :tongue:)

    Well, with an adapter wouldn't this then be the size of the 16mm pancake?

    Make lemonade!

    I'd personnally hope they make something different from what all others are doing, such as FF body that has a mount that is compatible with lenses such as m mount.
