Canon 5D Mk2 with Panavision Lens

I just saw this on the net... A Canon 5D Mark II fitted with a Panavision Primo 11 to 1 zoom using Panavision's EOS adapter.

I know that the 5D MkII is a good camera, but this is just a bit too much! Like a monster truck, it works... but the setup actually nullifies the utility and purpose of the machine and what it was originally intended for (a convenient "COMPACT" camera you can easily carry around, that can shoot both high-definition cine and still at the same time)... And like a monster truck, it is also slightly intimidating, but strangely attractive at the same time.

You know what they say, the larger the lens...
