According to the now 3 years old Nikon patent, the sensor will be at the edge of a small box (much like the screen of a small cell-phone), which will be slotted in position from the left side (as we look at the VF eye-piece) and it will be user interchangeable....

I had something like that, a long long time ago There were at least four different backs available, including a 6mp near full frame. Mine had a 2.5x crop factor, 1.5MP, ISO 100

All that for a mere $16,000

Man, how we've progressed since.


Seriously though, as cool as the interchangeable sensor idea sounds in theory, it wouldn't be feasible in practice...
