I have found a sort of middle ground by buying used professional grade gear. Good tripods, good rails systems, good C-stands, those are things that if you get high quality gear, they can last for decades and not necessarily be subject to fast moving technology.
I end up watching ebay for a few weeks until the right thing comes along at the right price. I just picked up a used RedRock rail and follow focus system for $750. It has some cosmetic bumps and bruises but works really smoothly. And because that kind of gear will I can still use it when I upgrade to the a 15K, 20-stop DR, infinite focus camera that will probably come out in a year or so.
