I don't seriously believe this will happen, but I can dream all day long. I like sharp, crisp enlargements and it doesn't take long for that to go away when enlarging my 35mm stuff. I just remember those gorgeous prints from medium format.

Have you even tried printing from 24 or 36MP FF DSLR images? I think you will find that the digital images are far 'sharper' and 'crisper' from digital sensors (and noise/grain free) than from even MF film.

Today's DSLRs, especially FF, have far exceeded what 35mm film could do, and are seriously encrouching on what MF, especially MF film, could do. This is actually a contributing factor in the demise of medium format.

I don't know, my D600 is great and I much prefer it to 35mm film. But I don't know if it's quite exceeded medium format. I've seen some pretty huge prints from medium format that wouldn't be feasible even with a D800. The enlargement that we used to see from 6x6 or 6x7 negatives was tremendous.
