Quite a bit cheaper, but still looks decent. I could just add the 6 inch extentions to it and have 16 inches for the price $260 instead. Only thing I'm unsure off is wether the height between the base and the rods is too high.

Because SLR glass is so short you'll want the 5D right at the front on any plate you buy or else you won't be able to get the motor in the right spot to engage.
Attached is a picture of a quick and dirty 5D shoot i did awhile back with my Flyer Le, 5D, 21mm ZF and the Zacuto Plate, you'll also see I have a manfrotto QR plate between the zacuto plate and the camera body.
Its not the great QR but it does the job, the Really Right Stuff plates are better.
No motor on there as they didnt have a budget for a 1st.. and 21mm on full frame stopped down is fine.. kinda.
