Q on this thing

I just thought of this: Did anyone try the Q on a certain white-ish lens?

Canon’s 5200mm prime lens is super rare and quite massive | News |

The cool thing is that the Q gives us mortals the capability of getting an equivalent FOV to this monster if we want to. I could add a 2x TC to my $450 Tokina 150-500 f5.6 SD for a 1000mm f11 which would give me a 5580mm at f11 -- a touch faster than the Canon, with a 4m MFD (30x closer), and I don't need the truck to transport or support it.

If I were to do this, I could claim that IQ is equal or better, and who would be able to dispute it. . .?

The guy who puts the Canon on his 1DX ?

I'd really, REALLY like to see the Q used with this lens. Who needs multi-billion-dollar observatories anyway?

I have seen sharper moon shots on this forum than in that video, OK it must be the video but they could have removed CA
