Yikes... I just looked at the price on the Pro35. It's twice the cost of the HPC2000. Holy crap! I think we'll see other folks coming out with far more affordable units. At that price, you could get the very best HD video glass on the market (which would probably be as good as a cine lens going through the P+S).

I can't get over asking $27,000 for an adapter...

Maybe, but it still won't have the film-like DOF that can only come from using the adapters. I sincerely hope that somebody does come out with some competitive products - like an M2-type adapter made for the bigger mounts.
