If Sony can get it right (make it manufacturer at a "reasonable" price) this could be a game changer bigger than all of this mirrorless stuff (actually, many of will argue that mirrorless wasn't really a game changer - but that is another topic).

This has the potential to make it possible to put really small, simple lens designs on bodies and have IQ on par with the most expensive glass available.

A pixel peepers dream come true with never another soft corner. Yahoo, every brick will look identical. I'm all for innovation but we haven't even seen a sample pic yet. I've seen the rumors but it would be nice to see what this will look like and do for photography. No one ever attempted to curve film for this effect, did they?
