Curved sensors now go into mass production. Are they coming to mirrorless cameras too?

The first curved sensor made it now officially into mass production. It’s from a french company named “Curve-One“. Here are some quick info about the sensor advantages:

But when are those kind of sensors to a mirrorless camera? Not any time soon for sure. The problem is that you would have to launch a completely new line of lenses designed for those sensors. Your “older” lenses designed for flat sensors would not work anymore.

I know Sony had such a prototype lens and some patents some years ago. I guess an RX fixed lens camera using such a sensor may be coming in 2-3 years…
