Don't overlook the 645 & 6x7 glass on FF...

I sense they would shine on a FF machine. They work quite nicely on APS-C if you get a good copy but the smaller sensors can hide many flaws in a given lens that a 645D body would expose quickly. Lately though those lenses have jumped in price in no small part because of the 645D. I cringe at what will happen when the 645D II hits the streets...

But including those lens families with an adapter as part of the FF line-up can make things interesting fast. I know the register distance is an issue so Pentax can just put a K-mount on a 645 or 67 lens and call it FF...a shame because those are some nifty lenses.
