Having just bought my first EF-S body since the barely remembered 20D, (a 100D/Rebel SL-1 for travel) my interest in very compact lenses have jumped. I do have the 40mm f/2.8 but would dearly like a 22 or wider. Are there any third party wide pancakes from Sigma, Tamron etc?

BTW I'm loving the SL-1..it's a featherweight compared to my gripped 5D3 and 1D4.

The closest I've seen is a 28mm K-mount (Pentax) pancake:

which can be adapted to EF.  Everything I've seen that's wider than that is designed for mirrorless cameras, which have a shorter flange distance.

@pwp -- Voigtlander has a manual focus 20mm f/3.5 (also a 28mm f/2.8 ) in a Canon mount that is fairly compact.

Thanks gtog. The 20mm f/3.5 looks VERY enticing. Don't know how I missed this one. I'll check it out further.

I'd like a 50mm pancake f2.

Although they never called it a pancake the Nikkor 50mm f2 from 1977 to about 1979 was pretty well a pancake lens fitted (deep) into a normal 50mm 1.4 body. By far the best 50mm I have ever used.

Yes!
An extra stop of light on the Pancake would do wonders, and 40mm is a little short for my taste, though being the widest lens I own at the moment means it gets used for a lot for landscape pictures.
If they could keep the close MFD that would be great too.
