Z1 - Lanc - Push Auto

Can anyone recommend a LANC controller for the Z1 and/or FX1 that will allow me to control the "Push auto Focus" function?

(I posted the question here as it is Sony Z1/FX1 specific, rather than LANC specific)

Bebob Zoe DVL. They just lowered the price a $100 tp around $240. I just bought one and it works well. Sold by both B&H and EVS (their page may still have the old price--call them--I bought from EVS).

Thanks Darin,
I will take a look at it.
Sounds like what I am looking for,

The Manfrotto 523Pro will also give you this function - as well as being part of a neat black panbar.

You should also be aware of an unfortunate limitation to the way the Sony has implemented LANC on the Z1: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=55047
