You are joking arent you?Its enough to put 22fL on a 14ft 235 email@example.com gain. Its also tested with a min of 150hrs so its the equivalent of a good bit more. That will be fairly close to that of an HT5k at those hours.
Im also willing to stake my life that it wouldn't be done for under $10k. When you get into large sizes the glass quality needs to be at a level that just wouldn't allow that. Not only that, you still just be looking at a bright version of an RS1/2 with the crazy color, soft image, low ANSI,halos and the uniformity issues etc etc. It would have the CR advantage, but that wont be an issue for very long.
The simple litmus test is that if they could have, they would have.
Many of us here have seen and worked with very bright 4K lc based machines and they're not good at all. That may change at some point.
