Yes, I agree with what everyone is stating. "Economy of Scale" is definitely a consideration of every product ever produced. The question that then arises, in the case of MF, does "Sufficient Scale" actually exist? I think that as one moves up in format size "Scale" decreases proportionately. There are fewer MF shooters then there are 35 mm and still fewer LF and ULF shooters then the formats beneath them in size. For this decreasing market base, I do not foresee the rapid price decline that one would find in items of great mass demand such as video and music players. Certainly, I can see that MF will probably be affected by advances in technology. I do not see it as a vanishing format, however.
