Ultra 16 Lenses

Like the Master Primes, the Ultra 16 lenses combine high speed with outstanding optical performance. With a widest stop of T1.3 they create shallow depth of field and allow shooting on tight lighting budgets or under severe time pressure. Equaled by no other Super 16 lenses in optical performance, they join the other ARRI lenses in elevating the Super 16 image to its highest possible quality. All nine Ultra 16 lenses (6, 8, 9.5, 12, 14, 18, 25, 35, 50 mm) cover the full Super 16 format and are fully compatible with the optical quality, color balance and ergonomics of the other ARRI lenses. The Ultra 16 lenses are the perfect companions to the new Super 16 cameras, the ARRIFLEX 416, 416 Plus and 416 Plus HS.
