"ARRI is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with cmotion, a major manufacturer of high-end lens control systems for cinematographic applications. As a result of the partnership, the current cmotion hand controllers will become compatible with the ARRI ALEXA Plus camera. Customers will have the choice of using either ARRI hand controllers such as the Wireless Compact Unit (WCU-3) or cmotion's modular cvolution system."

I used the integrated FF system once on the 416 and found it a headache. Follow focus units should be separate to cameras so u can power cycle them (turn them on and off until they work) and not loose the directors frame. Especially when cameras take so long to turn on. The Alexa isn't immediate y any stretch.
