I love the 40mm pancake on my full frame 5D3. A 22mm pancake -- ideally with a EF mount, but I'd settle for EF-S -- would be great for a crop body, and would make the SL1 an ideal compact solution.

Yeah a EF mount would be nice but like you said I would sure as heck be ok with a EF-S mount too for a 22mm pancake!

I'd love an EF 24-70 F2 IS pancake. Or better yet, a 70-200 f/2 IS pancake.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you can only make pancake lenses whose FL is the same (or close) to the sensor registration distance of the camera.

That's why we have the 40mm pancake for SLR and 22mm for the EOS M.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

Well, Voiglander produces an EF 20mm pancake f/3.5, so why not Canon with AF ?

I'm really jealous of the Pentax 77 1.8. Or even the 70 2.4. I wish Canon would do something like that.

I was just saying the other day that a wide angle pancake would be great for my 5D3. Come on Canon you can do it.

That's why we have the 40mm pancake for SLR and 22mm for the EOS M.

Yes, there are quite strict restrictions limiting what focal ranges/apertures that may be made in the pancake format. Outside that range, the lens either needs extra lens elements to "pick up" the light, or extra lens elements to project the captured light onto the sensor.
