Any thoughts as to why Canon released the 40/2.8 pancake so far ahead of its mirrorless offering?

"becuse it is oh so cute and oh so cheap"! These people have no concept whatsoever, that a lens with 44mm flange-back will not natively fit on a future Canon mirrorless cam and that they can use it only with a fairly bulky adapter or buy yet another EF-M "pancake" lens. Canon is pretty smart. Unlike many of its customers. hehe. :-)
