Miniature Version of Cine-Servo Lenses

Canon has recently introduced two Cine-Servo lenses. This action has been taken in an attempt to expand the creativity and broaden the opportunities for video shooters by combining the common features of cinema lenses and common features of broadcast lenses in one unit, which I think is a great innovation that will be annexed to Canon's long history of ingenuity. Following the introduction of these lenses, is anyone expecting- in the near future- miniature versions of Cine-Servo that would be similar to EF and EF-S lenses and feature their attributes in terms of design, shape, dimensions, weight and price -of course- very much like what Sony has done by introducing FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens?

It would be great if Canon did bring out a comparable Servo Zoom lens to the Sony 28-135mm f/4 - although many users have found that this lens has a awkward range and is simply not wide enough for normal usage.

Not possible.

Ciné zooms are parfocal. Full stop. This makes them heavier and more expensive.

You AREN'T going to see a true ciné zoom lens anywhere near the price point of even good quality stills glass in the foreseeable future.

Lenses increasingly will include flange back look up tables that allow back focus to be adjusted on the fly when mounted on compatible cameras but this isn't the same as a true ciné zoom.

How would you asses Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens? I know that this lens is not comparable with PL lenses in many aspects but still performing well on Sony FS7 according to some reviews.
Do you agree with me that Canon may take the step towards producing similar lens?
