Yet Another Stupid DSLR Product

I'm going to add a new category to this site : Stupid DSLR Stuff.  Just when you think you've seen either every overpriced piece of gear, or just plain stupidly designed piece of gear that some one thinks slapping dslr onto the name will make it sell :

 

Ok, this is a peice of spring steel bent in a loop to grab the focus ring. I guess these guys have NEVER seen all the other focus levers that are out there, and have been for maybe the last 100 years. There is nothing to patent here guys, there is so much prior art here is isn't funny. This isn't a follow focus, you're not fooling anyone. Call it what it is, a focus assist lever.
