Usually, the lens made for the larger format will be somewhat less sharp in the center, but it will have greater consistency across the frame: corner softness relative to the center, distortion, and vignetting will often be reduced compared to the small-sensor dedicated lens.

The larger format lens will almost certainly be much larger and heavier.
