Oh, you would want to have some sort of lens already to protect
the sensor. It just wouldn't have to be optically correct. E.g.,
it could be at an "incorrect" distance. Consider the contorted
optics camera makers use to make their cameras smaller. I wonder
if there isn't an easier if unconventional way.
