I'm so into "pancake lenses" after buying a compact SL1 with 40mm pancake. This kit is simply awesome for light travels.


but i WISH they would make some more pancake lenses now. something like a 24mm or a wider 18mm pancake. ??? eh???

The 22mm 2.0 is an absolute dream. Too bad its only In EF-M mount.

A 17mm full frame pancake would be nice.

Well I kinda stumbled onto another pancake option for us, it's really affordable also.

Here it is on my EOS 35mm body next to my M and it's pancake lens.

Ended up costing me only $19(lens and adapter)

Clears the mirror just fine, gives infinity focus and no crappy glass adapter.
It's a 50mm 2.0(made by Ricoh for Sears)

I can write up a mini article if anyone is interested, I know it's not a wide angle like you wanted but it's so cheap! :D

I'd like a pancake supertelephoto lens, to use in all those places where you 'can't take big lenses' (e.g. cricket matches). Most likely, it would need DO technology.

Doesn't matter if it's 150mm wide - so long as it's physically short!

That's a pretty big pancake. More like a flapjack, IMO :lol:

The 400 DO is 233mm for a 400mm focal length, the 40mm pancake is 22.8mm. Damn close to the same ratios :p

I would enjoy a wide angle pancake. Maybe a 17mm. I would make for a very compact travel. 17mm, 40mm, and a 85mm would be sweet.

Wasn't there a rumor about an EF-S 24mm lens? If true, if not pancake, I would assume it's a very compact design, probably f/2.8. Sounds awesome on an APS-C Canon.

There's no theoretical reason it can't be made even shorter. 100mm or shorter in length would be good.

233mm is too long to get inside many grounds.

It'd be even nicer combined with a variable 1-2x zoom teleconverter. Bring three (relatively) small items into the ground - camera, lens and TC - and, all of a sudden, you've got a 400-800mm f/4.0-8.0 lens!
