Size matters?

That might be true but for things like product photography, weddings and portraits, I think they will still exist. Most "wanna'bes" don't have a grasp on lighting etc enough to duplicate the pros results. For sports, when there were only manual cameras, it took a lot of skill to get a great action shot with a manual focus 300mm f2.8 on slide film. The modern AF systems are so good and the DR is so wide now, this isn't a requirement anymore.

The above scenarios are why pros might be using med format digital in the future. And having a "large camera" does impress clients no less today than an RB67 did 10 years ago. People think "I don't have a camera -that- good". Sometimes size does matter
