Iris control on XL2

Yet another question about the XL2.

It seems to be the general consensus that iris control on the XL2 is not the best in the market. However, to compensate, is it possible to that a LANC controller could control more naturally the iris on the XL2? And, does such a controller exist?

Unfortunately, iris cannot be controlled by LANC. However, it can be controlled by FireWire. Keep your fingers crossed for remote FireWire camera controllers hopefully around the first of next year, if not sooner.
