ARRI Signature Prime lenses are equipped with the LPL (Large Positive Locking) lens mount, a key element of ARRI’s large-format camera system. The wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth allow LPL lenses to be small and lightweight, with a fast T-stop and pleasing bokeh, a combination of features that would not be possible with the old PL lens mount.

Constructed with magnesium housings and aluminum gear rings, each Signature Prime is lightweight, water-resistant, and features focus marks in feet. Anti-reflective coatings, light baffles, and light traps help to minimize any internal barrel flare.

Detachable magnetic rear filter holder, any material can be used to make a filter, from tinfoil and fishing line to stockings, wrapping paper, and vintage fabrics—each of them affecting bokeh, flaring, and diffusion in different ways. Alternatively, glass elements can be used to simulate vintage lenses, with images sharp in the center but deteriorating in the corners. Simply visit your local optician with a filter holder and ask them to fit a close-up lens of whatever strength, coating, or tint you want to try. The filter holder is magnetic, allowing fast and easy changes between looks, with no tools needed.

LDS-2 Next-Generation Lens Data System: The ARRI Signature Prime lenses are the first to use ARRI’s new LDS-2 Lens Data System, with high data rates and absolute encoders for lightning-fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lens data technology. The LDS-2 lens data system is backwards-compatible with ARRI’s LDS-1, and communicates with Cooke’s /i Technology.
