Ever see those giant rectangular cameras on TV sets and wonder why they’re so damn big? It’s because they house giant-ass lenses that can zoom from here to the moon while maintaining large, bright apertures. One internet mastermind decided to pair his $60,000/£39,056 Fujinon XA55 lens with a Panasonic GH4, and it’s great.

The glorious rig was made possible with a 2x extender to make it work with the GH4, as the lens is designed to cover a smaller 2/3” sensor. The resulting zoom range is the equivalent of 44-2415mm on a full-frame camera. Wheeeee!
