I will always appreciate your suggestion of the Olympus 14-42 pancake, along with the auto-open lens cap, for Micro-4/3. Not a fast lens but crisp and super compact.

As much as I like (I never loved LOL) the Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 pancake, I absolutely *adore* the Voigtländer Ultron 27mm f/2.0 manual focus lens. It's a tiny bit smaller but one stop faster. It's manual focus, but a dream to use; it actually stops at infinity (unlike so many lenses that let you focus past infinity - something that never made sense to me) so for street work it's a breeze to just set it at f/8, infinity focus and go. Plus it doesn't have that slow, noisy AF motor that Fuji saddled the XF27 with.

That little Ultron is practically glued to my X-Pro3. It's wonderful.
