Something to keep in mind is that paying more for good quality may in the long run be more economical. I still have a very useable but cosmetically beaten up Chrosziel matte box I payed a lot of money for in 1987. I still use a Mamiya 645 500mm lens from 1985 with a Fotodiox diopter on my Canon 7D and C300, $3300 was a lot of money back then.

I have a bin full of "budget" solutions that are no longer useable.

How long do plan to stick around in this business, some kit will move from one generation of technology (the camera) to the next.

Oh and Murphy's law, if a piece of kit is going to fail, it'll fail at the most inopportune moment.
