You might not want to consider the Minolta MD Rokkor-X 45mm 1:2, a real compact and petite prime that seems to fit any X, XD, or XG series SLR film camera just right, as a true pancake lens. At only 60mm long and 125 grams in weight, it might be only just close enough.

On the E-P5 it extrudes out long enough to be almost the perfect fit, with just the right weight, feel, and balance in the cradle of your right hand and the fingers of your left hand extended just enough to be really comfortable with the focus and aperture rings.

The lens is from the time when Minolta started making kit lenses that were more affordable to the consumer. Though well made by today’s standards, the 6 elements in 5 groups have a 5-bladed diaphragm, which is not all metal and glass as it comes with more plastic components.

Image quality, however, is something you will be surprised by.
