If you seriously want to give Medium Format Digital photography a try, the only affordable way in is the Pentax 645D and some of the great lenses made for the Pentax 645 system.
I sold my 645D, but you can find a brand new 645D body for $6,999 at B&H, Amazon, etc. and see what those "fat pixel" files look like
Update: there is a 645D available on Fred Miranda for $4,350!!! : http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1273109/0?keyword=645D#12129448
The 645D is a great camera and handles a lot like the top of the line Nikon and Canon DSLR's, but with a much larger sensor.
I am selling four SMC Pentax FA Lenses separately on Fred Miranda and would like to offer them as a bundle to somebody moving into Medium Format Digital
