just need more pancake lenses and smaller lenses to put on our APS-C and FF cameras.
the 40mm F2.8 pancake is great lens for convenience and IQ
if makes my SLR's much more compact
the opposite of the humungous, bulky, heavy L f2.8 lenses
the last thing I want is a small camera with a small uncomfortable grip, small hard to adjust controls, and slow contrast-detect focus
--- that includes EOS-M, 4/3 format, Nikon 1, etc, etc, etc
i agree with you on the 40mm. i love that lens and use it on my 5d3 frequently. i also use the 50 1.4 and now have re-purchased the 28 1.8 because of its size. i sold the much too large 24-105, and have no need for anything that size or larger. i keep the 135L because, frankly, it's ridiculously good to the point where it's worth holding on to.
i'm also with you on the small controls on small cameras. i have large hands. but honestly i'm fine with, for instance, the x100 which i own and love. i can control the aperture on the lens, the shutter speed up top, EV up top... don't have much occasion to mess with the fiddly little buttons on the back. but i can completely understand how this could be an issue for someone. i also have no experience with other smaller bodies, so those may be worse.
certainly this is a personal thing. even for myself... there are times i like having a hefty body that i'm not afraid of. with the x100 i'm all tucking it in my coat so a snowflake doesn't fall on it, lest it short circuit
