Q lens size question

I have the Q with the 02 zoom. How does the size of the 01 prime compare to the zoom?
Will they ever sell a pancake style lens for the Q; is that technically possible?
Thanks for your advice

It's coming this year! This lens could well qualify to be one of the worst ILC lenses ever made- but time will tell. I think currently Olympus holds that title with their cap lens.

If it's dirt cheap, I'll buy it just to have an ultra slim "pancake" lens.

Hopefully they price it at no more than $50, but considering the recent price politics of Pentax USA, you never know!

The Q with that lens would be one low profile set up.

Cap lenses are pretty slow aren't they? F8?
