Good Afternoon, ZorkiRF,
One approach is to think of film simply as a recording device. If you shoot the same scene three times, once with 35mm, once with MF, and once with LF, you will record the same thing each time, but, with 35mm all the information has to be crammed into one and one-half square inches. With the larger sizes, the same information is recorded onto more square inches, allowing for the possibility that more subtle detail will be retained. A crude comparison (dating me back several decades, of course) is the recording of music onto tape at slow, medium, and fast speeds. The fastest speed, usually 7.5 inches/sec. used more tape to acquire the same basic information but was more likely to preserve more detail and sound better.
Anyway, you're obviously infected by the same disease many of us suffer from; LF is just around the corner!
