I agree with stev023, the opposite should be true, especially regarding old lenses.

Afraid not. Curvature of the sensor will allow simpler lens designs but wreak havoc with legacy lenses designed for a flat field sensor.

I don't know why - legacy lenses are anything but flat. We don't know how much curve is in this new sensor and we don't know how flat lenses really are other than the fact that they aren't flat. Flat is the goal, but flat they are not.
