I suspect that ROM will play into the (presumed) larger format somehow, for
example Leica's "engineering solution" to using older lenses - a phrase
that has caused some panic on a few forums - may be to limit non-ROM lenses
to 24x36mm while using the ROM info to tell the camera how big an image
circle the lens can provide.  Pure speculation on my part.
