    Actually the 35mm f/2 (thorium!) is the next lens I want to get. The 2.8 sounds appealing, certainly for outside stuff, but I just seriously dislike anything slower than f/2. Call me spoiled...

    I was waffling about a pancake (Pentax) but I decided I wasn't gonna pay that much for a lens just because it was small. Cult lens, indeed.

    I have been using several Canon FL lenses on my Canon FD cameras in stopped down mode and am quite surprised on the final product.

    Nikon made a very nice pancake.. the 40mm f2.8 GN and the 40mm f2.8 AIP..

    the AIP is all chrome and has a really cool inward-facing hood.
    It was made for the FM3a. I think it is even chipped so it may work with some digital cameras. But again, most nikons arent as small as the little pentax's and olympus's.

    Something else to think about is that the pancake lenses on SLR's may be retro-focus designs. Whereas a similar focal length on a rangefinder, fixed-lens RF, or fixed lens P+S will be a normal design.

    and they keep coming......... hahaha

    On the topic of retro-focus (mentioned above by darinwc), is there anyone out there using non retro-focus lenses on an F-1, EF, or FTb w/ the mirror locked up?

    Does it stand to reason that minimum flange distance would be less of an issue with a non-retro focus lens thus allowing a greater variety of lenses to be modified? I know it can and is done, but I'm not sure what lenses are suitable or easy to get/modify.

    Basically this is a complete change of topic, but hey why not.

    "Nikon made a very nice pancake.. the 40mm f2.8 GN and the 40mm f2.8 AIP"

    These were 45mm lenses, not 40mm.
