Why is the E mount so small?
2

In all the photos of the sony bodies, when looking at front of cameras, the corners of the ff sensors are cut off by the e mount. Don't recall seeing this on other brands, is it the same for others? Was the e mount designed for crop sensors and is this why? Any impact on IQ or distortion?
