Yes, I think you're in the ballpark there for a good rig for doing some nice planned shots here and there. I've not made the investment myself, but I know of a few people that have done it with great results.
If you have a decent set up and are miticulous with focus, the results can be stunning.
Rodi was getting deep into this wasn't he? I wonder what he's using and what he'd advise about casual dslr video. (He's not casual about anything).
