The ARRI 16-32mm T2.8 Signature Zoom - Imperial, LPL Mount is designed for shooting in both Large Format (also known as Full Frame or VistaVision) and in Super 35. While the high image quality and beautiful background separation of large format cinematography enhance its almost three-dimensional feel, the Signature line's 8K resolving power and stunning bokeh also ensure pristine, immersive images in the smaller Super 35 format.

Signature Zooms exemplify state-of-the-art optical precision, and are designed to render organic, emotionally engaging images, gently softening and texturizing the large format with natural skin tones and creamy bokeh. The fact that the look is not based on aberrations of any sort means easier HDR and UHD workflows, which tend to exaggerate the aberrations of other lenses and create problems in post. The 8K resolution and deep shadow detail also lend themselves to future display requirements, while ARRI's renowned build quality and support structure assure a long product life. A fast maximum aperture of T2.8 facilitates shallow depth of field, and the smooth focus fall-off gives subjects heightened presence in the frame.

These lenses are fitted with the ARRI LPL mount (an open, universal standard for cross-format shooting), optimized for large-format sensors. A wider diameter and shorter flange focal depth allow the ARRI Signature Zoom lenses to be small and lightweight, without sacrificing image quality and characteristics. This combination of features would not be possible within the confines of the typical PL lens mount. Signature Zooms can be used with any LPL-compatible large format or Super 35 camera, from any manufacturer.

The ARRI Signature Zoom range features machined magnesium lens barrels, making the optics incredibly lightweight and robust. They also incorporate ARRI’s next-generation LDS-2 Lens Data System, with high data rates and absolute encoders for fast initializing. LDS-2 extends the possibilities of lens data and is being licensed to other lens and camera manufacturers.
