Not to rain on this parade, but my feelings in seeing these images are mixed.

On the one hand, the pixel dimensions are damn impressive and are close enough to what I'm getting with my 9000 ED that I'd consider the files large enough for the work I do. And the ISO performance exceeded my expectations. And it would be wonderful to use my existing lens kit.

On the OTHER hand, I'm not really that impressed by the image quality. All of the edges look REALLY "digital" -- I'd say almost a generation behind the latest from Nikon and Canon in terms of processing -- making it a great digital backup at best, in my book.

Just my $0.02!

Don't forget - the images were JPEGs, so looking at them in 1:1 magnification reveals JPEG artifacts more than any imperfections in details due to optics or digital in-camera processing.

They look oversharpened. I suspect these are not straight from the camera.

They also don't look properly exposed. These seem to be very "real world" and not perfect examples... which is fine for me, really, at this stage. Only actual use of the camera will say the truth.

The remarkable side of these pictures is that they were shot with the existing lenses and none of them shows any CA. Probably due to the quality of the existing lenses or the reduced image size of 44x33mm compared to 60x45mm for which they were designed for. Under all conditions, this means the owners of the existings lenses would not need to replace them to use on the 645D.

The images look beyond wonderful - astounding, and serve as a great desktop on my large monitor. Several weeks ago, I was prowling through Craigslist (actually craigslook) and stumbled across a surprising number of 645 camera and lens sets (3 lens set, 45, 75 and 150mm all for $450) for some pretty low prices. I would think that with the digital version on its way, that the lenses themselves command more. I was thinking of this as a proxy for the 645D demand. From that I would guess that the current demand would come from folks that were/are shooting 645 film, with few if any moving up from dSLRs.

I tend to agree with Andycogbill that the images look rather "digital", hopefully in part is due to the choice of "Hard" in both sharpness and contrast as you can see if you check the EXIF data of the Jpegs.
