“Pancake” type lenses enjoy widespread popularity among photographers. It is not always a rational feeling - such devices feature average fastness and the offered image quality on the edge of the frame is not of the highest calibre. Despite that fact perhaps everyone is tempted by their small dimensions, which, combined with a slight reflex camera, can make a discreet journalistic photography possible. Apart from that perhaps it would be difficult to find a person who doesn’t like a well-made “pancake” attached a reflex camera’s or mirrorless camera’s body.

We’ve managed to test several „pancakes” so far. Now the time has come for a record-breaker in this category. We think about the Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 mm f/3.5 SL II Aspherical model which, in spite of its diminutive dimensions, can provide the widest angle of view of all “pancakes” available on the market. Small dimensions, wide angle of view, a demanding full frame sensor – the standards for the Voigtlander Color Skopar 20 mm f/3.5 SL II Aspherical are raised really high. Let’s find out how it fared in our test, then.
