Canon has published a patent showing a series of fast prime lenses for camera bodies equipped with a curved sensor. The only way to get the advantages of a curved sensor is to have lenses dedicated to it.
Curved sensors would reduce the complexity and likely size and weight of high-performance lenses. The caveat is that supporting a curved sensor will require each lens to have its own radius to be compatible with the curved image sensor.
The following optical designs appear in patent: 2019-166711
- 35mm f/1.0
- 35mm f/1.2
- 35mm f/1.4
- 50mm f/1.0
- 50mm f/1.2
- 65mm f/1.2
- 85mm f/1.0
- 85mm f/1.2
- 100mm f/1.2
Can we expect a curved sensor system from Canon? Who knows at this point, but both Sony and Canon are working on it. Are there enough camera buyers to support another mount?
