Maybe there should also be a curved sensor in this camera, with a new series of Nikkor lenses. No old lenses and and for the time being, no other brand lenses.

Curved sensors are not a great idea for an interchangeable lens camera. The lenses need to be designed for whatever is the sensor curve (and it needs to be not so much a 'curve' as a 'dish'. Designing to a specific curve doesn't ease so many of the problems of designing a high quality lens (it makes it easier to mitigate the problems of a very poor lens) and would mean that the camera wouldn't be useable with legacy lenses.

That's exactly what I mean, everything new without any compromise. The curved sensor as a compulsor to release all the old (and other brand lenses). No mechanical aperture controle and no mechanical AF drive. Everything new and compact.

I don't think making a new system completely incompatible with legacy and third party lenses is a marketing strategy likely to succeed, especially since there are no clear technical advantages to be had

If Nikon would make the move to a larger format, would you be against it because old lenses do not fit?
