The Alpha will have less throw/punch than a par fixture like the arri, but a much cleaner beam - it's a true fresnel - the lamp moves in/out towards the fresnel lens. Another cool thing about the Alpha/blackjack is the ability to pull the lens - I have a couple of the blackjacks and can speak to how clean the shadow is - it's a razor sharp and incredible even field that's wide enough to throw the shadow of the accessory slots. If you want film-noir razor-sharp shadows, the Alpha/Blackjack can rival dedicated single-shadow broadlights like the Arri X light and Desisti Goya.
Basically, it's fresnel vs. par - which ever suits your needs. The Alpha is just a very clever and compact 4K fresnel that has the additional benefit of being easily run without a lens. I'm in the process of selling my jokers because I find that I like using my blackjacks (fresnel) better - the ability to use a fixture without diffusion is nice. To each situation there's a different solution, but if you're looking for a 4K fresnel, the Alpha is VERY nice.
