Alura Studio Zoom in action.

Alura Studio Zooms

Using the latest in optical design technology and innovative manufacturing techniques, the ARRI Alura Zooms combine the highest optical performance with an amazingly small size, weight and price. They are available as Studio zooms for use on a tripod or crane with a wider focal range, or as lightweight zooms which are significantly smaller and lighter in exchange for a reduced focal range. 

All Alura Zooms' color characteristics, as well as their handling, are matched to existing prime lenses in ARRI's outstanding repertoire.


Outstanding Optical Performance

  • High resolution, high contrast
  • Even field illumination
  • Minimized ghost, flares and veiling glare due to FUJINON multi-layer EBC coating
  • Greatly reduced chromatic aberration through the use of extraordinary dispersion glass
  • Minimized breathing, especially at the wide end where it counts
  • 9 iris leaves for round, out-of-focus highlights and a pleasing, organic bokeh

Consistent Optical Performance

  • Consistent contrast, resolution and field illumination across the whole focus and zoom range

Matched Zooms

  • Matched wide and long PL mount zooms for an efficient shooting pace
  • Small size and low weight for quick and easy handling on the set

Fast and Steady

  • T2.6
  • Consistent aperture over entire zoom range

Film Style Ergonomics

  • Compatible with film and digital ARRI cameras and accessories
  • Robust construction
  • Large, easy-to-read precision focus scales on both sides
  • Matched to existing prime lenses
  • Easy Servicing


I've never been so excited about a new lens as I was when the Alura Zoom 45-250 came out.

With the Alura Zoom, there was no sign of chromatic abberation, flare was well controlled and, in the grading suite, it matches well with the Master Primes.
