But that's not really what I'm discussing. With the 40 getting closer in price to the FA 43, the advantages the pancake offers dissipate.
That would be true if the 43 wasn't increasing in price at the same time

I really like that lens but it should be priced as a an entry-level limited prime.
It is priced as the entry-level limited prime compared to the other limiteds. The DA21, DA35/macro, DA70 and FA43 all about $200 more expensive.

If some wants an entry level non-limited prime, the DA35/2.4 is priced about $150 less than the DA40.
