I'm currently on a 10 day trip and had my bag packed with the f/4ish unholy zoom trinity (16-35, 24-105 , 100-400) and at the last moment changed bags, took off my L bracket and put one lens on the camera. The 40 pancake. Best decision I could have made.

Light bag, good semi wide/semi normal focal length (I loathe 50mm), balancing life along non shooters with photography. I'm away for 12 days next month and might do it again.
Yeah, once you've seen the light from a small single-lens solution, it's hard to go back to the heavy bag. I'm currently using the Leica Q for that but am looking forward to the rumored native RF pancake to appear.

Plus the f/4 trinity should come to RF as well.
I wasn’t even thinking about that. I wonder if the IQ of those will be as high as the others, or whether it will be thought of, by Canon, as mostly a less expensive, lighter series, with lower IQ.

so far, Canon has been hitting all the high points. If an f4 series is also a high point, I honestly don’t see how Nikon is going to catch them.

I think as long as we're talking about f/4 *L* lenses, we're going to be safe IQ-wise.

So many lens announced and patents filed since last year. I have not seen any new RF lens.
