Aperature Changes on the new Canons?

Hello,

I was watching some videos of the new XA 20 & 25 cameras and noticed there does not seem to be a way to adjust the aperature on the outside of the camera. Anybody get to hold these at NAB?

Thanks.

Nevermind, I see the iris wheel now!

I hope these new models will match up color & image wise with the XF line as they do look like useful cameras.

Played with the XA20 at NAB and it seemed very nice. They also gave it a new more round iris.
