      I just wonder whether that focus puller set-up is touchy or not. Seems like if you change your grip for any reason you’d knock the focus out. Damn good idea though. You’d have to put some rubber, plastic or metal in strategic places to give it durability against the inevitable bumps it will take. Not to mention a serious set of coats of clear coat to waterproof it, rubber grips on the handles and padding on the shoulder rest area. After a few hours holding that thing as is, you’d think you’d been holding a ‘cross’ the whole time.
