They not only increase the versatility of lenses (much lighter, thinner, and even achromatic focusing in a single lens element) but make them much easier to manufacture en masse.

Making a metalens is more like manufacturing a computer chip with photolithography processes, rather than the cutting and polishing of conventional curved lenses used today.

It makes sense to make a big change all at once for lightfield capture considering LF itself is a big change from conventional camera technology - might as well make a clean break.

We should probably start a "Encoding for VR" thread.
