Well, if implemented fully (by Sony and whomever Sony sells the sensor too) it could also mean that all legacy lenses become useless. I'm not sure any increased performance is worth that trade off.

Another way of looking at is another Sony plot to make people buy more Sony stuff due to Sony's unique approach. Not for the first time.

This is the most infuriating thing about it for me. This would be the ultimate platform abandonment by Sony. Ditching the flat sensor altogether.

Still, this would be offset by the significantly higher IQ and cheaper, simpler, lighter lenses. Overall I'm excited.
