The 1.25X ISCO is huge , it actually dwarfs the ISCO IIIL 1.33X which by anamorphic lens standards is already big and heavy. You'll want a separate dedicated mount for the lens without question. The 1.25X would be necessary if you want to utilize the full 17:9 panel like the DCR but it's also intended to be used on a curved screen whereas the DCR is intended for a flat screen. The DCR is by comparison very small, extremely light, in fact, I hung mine off the mounting plate of my current projector without issue . I did not have a electric sled as the lens remains fixed in place, that saves a lot of weight too. Luckily the Sony have stretch and shrink modes, it's not necessary to move the anamorphic lens at all .
