forget (d)slrs. mirrorless cameras do offer all these sensor format opportunities without major problems ... ... square sensor, round sensor ...
Do they? Which ones? All mirrorless I can think of have 4:3 or 3:2 sensors.
He said 'opportunities', as in the opportunity for any or all camera makers to make the perfect camera for him, to his exact specifications. I'm sure they're all chomping at the bit for that, after all he thinks millions of buyers share his desires.
It was the implication that DSLRs could not offer that opportunity as in "...mirrorless cameras do offer all these sensor format opportunities...once slapping mirrors, chunky glass prisms and separate phase-AF arrays are finally eliminated".
Actually the bigger improvement would be curved sensors to reduce/avoid the need for the full panoply of corrective elements needed for a rectilinear lens.
