A little negativity about the 645

A cheaper medium size camera sounds great. But looking at the chip size, it's only 25% larger than a "full frame" sensor - not 300% larger, the way medium format film is, compared to 35mm film.

25% larger is only about a third of a stop benefit. It seems to me, that's not going to make that much of a difference, and certainly it'll be overshadowed by the superior lenses being made for full frame by Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Leica. Additionally, this camera will be larger and heavier than full-frame cameras.

Perhaps there's something else I'm not considering? But it doesn't sound all that promising to me.
