NONE of them "require" 90 degrees! If they did, you would only get a single
ray in the center! All CCDs used in cameras have SOME angle of view before

Why not? If a CCD is designed such that it accommodates these lenses, as
well as any film can, then what's the problem? This is a relatively new
issue to CCD designers and processes. I have no doubt that this issue will
be less and less with new CCDs.
Do you even have ANY idea what lense starts to show falloff on the 1Dx?
