Follow focus for $320 - feasible?

Seen this on ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA:IT&ih=022

It's cheap, d'you think it's going to be dodgy? It's just, I can't afford like, $845 for a follow focus.

Cheers

it's an indian knockoff - it may work quite well but the after sales service would be non-existant (just my opinion)

you could have a look at indifocus for around the same price

I'm only just testing it out at the moment but it looks pretty good for the money - and the after sales service is great - they mixed up a couple of orders to Australia and sent the correct parts before I called them. I got the rails as well and the speed crank.

Woah... that's cheap. Thanks very much! Just phoned them to ask about some stuff, very helpful. I'll buy from them.
