Rhino Rig? Thoughts?

Thinking about getting the complete Rhino Rig and adding a Matte Box and Follow Focus. I'm sure it is very well made, but the base plate wouldn't be compatible with pieces off other rigs.

I saw this CAME-TV Rig online and it looks nice. The Matte Box and FF are included, plus I like that it has the HDMI clamp and cheese plate connectors on the sides.

Anyone have any experience with either?
It would be for a GH4 and 5D MarkIII

I've been looking at the Came-TV rig myself for the GH4. I trust Tom's review that they have on the page (also found on his site and YT).

The Rhino rig, to me, just doesn't make sense. You've got what looks like to be a comfy shoulder pad, but all the weight is supported by your arms due to the placement of the camera. I like the camera to sit on my shoulder so adding a shoulder pad & handles to the Came-TV rig for a few hundred bucks makes more sense.
