And after that, we'll see how many potential MF customers who will settle for the IQ offered by the 75% cheaper -- and vastly more versatile -- camera.

You can take the same reasoning and ask that....why use FF when a D7000 or K-5 will be less expensive?

After all, no one prints any more, so why bother w/ anything more than 12MP when you're just going to put them on your facebook page?

And even when you do print, you'll probably do 8x10. I've got a 20x30" print on the wall from a 10MP K10D that looks great.
So why would you even care about 36MP for 3x the cost of your APS-C camera?

And in case you're curious to see what an older generation digital MF sensor and narrow DOF is capable of:

You have to choose your own "need" vs. "want" path depending on your own priorities...
