[Mark Suszko] "Once it is encumbered with all the rails, matte boxes, French Flags, viewfinders, cages, auxiliary grips, hoods and eyepiece shades, focus whips and assorted "stuff" that turns it into another nod to the must-look-like-an-erector-set-to-be-pro aesthetic, people will flock to buy it. It has to look complicated to be good, right? Right?"

Not dismissively - but in the sense that nearly all "rails" system are built on the same idea as the classic kids building system.

Standardized rods and connectors that you configure to taste.
