On the one hand a curved sensor should be compatible with existing lenses, as the curve matches most lens's convex field curvature, and should produce sharper edges as a result. On the other hand, each focal length and each field curvature would have it's own optimum sensor curvature, so amount of sensor curvature would be a compromise, but still better than flat sensor. Added edge sharpness would be for 2 reasons: better fit to field curvature, and incident light angle closer

to 90 degrees at edges.

"Normal to the plane" is the correct term. Ha ha.

Very good, Stevo. English is my 3rd language, you want to carry on the discussion in Afrikaans or German?

My Afrikaans is kind of weak and my German is as good as my Arabic...
