Just received a 18-50 Retractable DA lens.
Somewhat disappointed with the chunky size and the sticky retraction mechanism
The electric focus is fantastic, though.
Still waiting for additons to the XS line...come the messiah

Somewhere there is a series of posts regarding a rumored curved sensor by Sony.

Surely a 90mm radius would give better access to the sensor pixel wells, but the camera is beginning to look like a softball rather than a brick.

But seriously, each digital-enhanced lens has a collimating element at the rear to minimize the angle of rays as they hit the sensor. A 18mm diameter element would likely give enough spread to cover full frame curved sensors.

I had forgotten the 18-50. It does retract so it stores smaller: just bigger than the 21 DA. Thanks for mentioning it.

I Still think there is a big place for pentax to introduce a compact mirrorless with widely compatible lenses that enter the mirror box space.

Just dreaming...
About a pancake zoom that fits a 20 or 16 minimum to 40-45 maximum into the space no longer needed for the mirror and those chunky retro-focus designs it requires.

I love my K-01 but hate carrying a 21 DA with the 40 XS. Let me have a super compact pancake zoom that fits the body.
