Heden Group from sweden makes this awesome VLC-1L + VM35 Zoom/Focus controller and motor for Fujinon MK-series lenses on Sony FS5 / FS7 / FS7II and it integrates with the sony zoom rocker on the handle (which is controlled by the LANC protocol).

There is also talk about doing a special handle for the cameras with both focus and zoom control (dual channel) and since the Heden products are all building blocks, they can be combined in different ways. If you want to use this with a wireless controller, you just unplug it from the camera and plug it into the CARAT system. Rumours has it that there will be a future package, with wireless control for the V series and the VM35-256 motor for the Fujinon MK series.

I saw the focus version today at IBC 2017. It was a prototype, but the production model is ready in November. Retail price will be € 1995,-
