do Cine lenses have the same focus throw?

I was thinking about why Cine lenses cost so much... the obvious reason is that there's not a lot of breathing, great opticals, and great quality. However, I'm wondering if all cine lenses have the same focus throw so it's easier for a 1s AC to do a follow focus.

Focus throw varies from lens type to lens type.

However, the focus marking will vary. The best lenses are hand calibrated.
