So this would be one or more rigid mirrors, no frames, any size and shape you want, as long as light gets to the PD AF arrays. I'm not convinced that could never be unobtrusive.


I am completely at a loss why would this be preferable to having PD-AF sensors on the main sensor (a la Nikon 1 or, IIUC, Canon's new mirrorless EOS)? Why go to all the trouble if one can get rid of mirror completely? Especially long-term, with EVFs continuously improving?
