Summary and conclusions

It is very well possible that MF can offer better image quality than smaller formates. This is not depending on MF or some magic properties of the sensors,
CCD or CMOS or even 16 bitness. The obvious reason for MF having advantages is the larger size of the sensor. The larger size of the sensor helps in:
  • Capturing more photons
  • Making less demand on the lens
Regarding color reproduction I don't know. I have seen direct comparisons where I would argue that MF has better color, but that may depend on a lot of factors.
