I read with much interest on the today's new topic "Dpreview straightens out distortion correction"

Ideally, image sensors should be curved instead of flat. God is smarter than we thought, he had long made sure that all living things with eyes have curved corneas. And yet, we are still using flat sensors LOL !

We're not there yet but I foresee future generations of image sensors to be curved. This way, larger sensors can be used on much smaller body with lens and much improved distortion as well.
