No. It's simply the case that big sensor technology has not yet caught up to the lenses yet.

Backside illumination and extremely thin ir filters are the technology direction in cell phone cameras. And the reason is because they allow high-incidence symmetrical lens designs to perform at their best.

High-incidence lenses are favored because they give the highest quality for the smallest size, just like rangefinder lenses.

Give it a year or two and we'll have the perfect mirrorless for RF.
