I don't see what the bonus is when it is normal for such a lens.
a lens being pafocal is essential for video, less for stills
1. No idea what you think this ads to my post. My post was about pointing out that being parfocal IS NOT SPECIAL (other lenses are too).
2. Most serious video does not deal at all with zooming in or out.
3. You must not have a lot of close up stills experience to not understand the annoyance of changing focus plane while zooming to find the right framing.
