Subject isolation, acutance (no AA filter), leaf-shutter lenses. Like I said, the D3X is a far more versatile camera and the market base of people who want MF for those unique things MF can do is very small, but it's there nonetheless.

If the 645D is priced at D3X level and delivers better IQ, then it will sell. But that's a big "if". The MF back priced closest to the Nikon fails miserably against it
I am not so sure that you can base a statement that the ZD back is failing miserably against D3X based on the DxO mark (I am not saying that it could not be the case, I would just be somewhat careful to base that statement on DxO). According to DxO my old K10D is better than the ZD Medium Format. Even though that would be nice, I do not think that is true.

Best regards,

the ZD was plagued by problems with it's initial launch, studio photographers were having difficulties with the synchronisation between the camera/ Back - with pentax making the camera/back as a single unit there shouldn't be any problems whatsoever.
