Speeding Towards Cinematic Visual Brilliance

25 / 35 / 50 / 75 / 100mm T1.4 | VV / FF

The Arles Prime lens series draws its name from the picturesque town of Arles in southern France, a cherished source of inspiration for the artist Vincent van Gogh. Renowned for its abundant sunlight and vibrant colors throughout the seasons, Arles catalyzed van Gogh's departure from conventional artistic styles.

DZOFILM's Arles Prime series, with its T1.4 fast apertures, captures the dynamic interplay of light and shadow, igniting fresh possibilities for artistic expression and cinematic creativity.

Intro Video

High-Speed Prime
for Ultimate Visual Quality

With a T1.4 ultra-wide aperture, the Arles Prime delivers abundant light intake, excelling in low-light and complex shooting conditions. It creates stunningly dreamy shallow depth of field, precisely highlighting every narrative detail.

At wide-open aperture, the lens ensures even brightness transitions and clear rendering of intricate light and shadow details. It supports high frame rate shooting without compromising image quality, producing smooth and exquisite cinematic footage.

Crafted Precision for Immaculate Clarity

Using advanced multi-layer nano-coating technology, the Arles series features a specially calibrated blue coating to minimize reflections and effectively reduce stray light and ghosting. This ensures stable and controllable flares.


The internal lens structure utilizes sandblasting and anodizing techniques to create a micro-level anti-reflective coating with ultra-low reflectivity, reducing diffuse reflections. Even when shooting directly against the light, the lenses deliver clean and sharp images.

Across the entire focal range, color temperatures remain consistent around 5000K, faithfully reproducing vivid, true-to-life colors and presenting a natural, neutral visual style.

Cinematic Depth with Painterly Rendering

The Arles Prime boasts 16 aperture blades, delivering delightful circular bokeh and ensuring smooth transitions between in-focus and out-of-focus areas. At maximum aperture, it presents a soft low-contrast look, while slight swirling bokeh on the periphery adds a distinctive characteristic to the image, enhancing the emotional depth of each frame.


The built-in floating lens elements substantially minimize aberrations during focusing transitions from infinity to close-up, improving optical performance. Its minimal breathing immerses viewers in each frame, amplifying the emotional impact of the scenes.

Exquisite Optics
Superlative Performance

The Arles Primes achieve remarkable image quality through rigorous optical design, ensuring consistent high resolution while meeting the demands of high-end cinematography.

The 14mm, 21mm, and 25mm lenses each incorporate two aspherical elements (including one 50mm large-diameter aspherical element), which improves image quality in low-light conditions. With micron-level precision manufacturing, these lenses maintain a lightweight and compact form while effectively correcting spherical aberration and coma, reducing onion-ring bokeh, and minimizing wide-angle distortion and astigmatism.

The entire series uses low-dispersion optical materials to precisely suppress chromatic aberration, resulting in exceptional optical performance.

Robust Mechanical, Smooth Workflow

The Arles has undergone thorough testing to ensure structural integrity, and it guarantees smooth operation of the focus and aperture rings for precise focusing and accurate exposure with micron-level precision.


Fatigue Testing


High-frequency Vibration

The dual interchangeable imperial/metric focus scale design facilitates quick switching, meeting diverse needs.


Compact Design for Seamless Integration

Designed to work seamlessly with industry-standard cine accessories, it includes a uniform front diameter of 95mm and an 86mm filter size over the whole range.With a standard 0.8 MOD gear pitch design and consistent positioning of focus and aperture rings across the series, lens and accessory swaps require no readjustment, greatly enhancing on-set efficiency. Except for the 135mm and 180mm, all lenses maintain the same body length, further simplifying equipment changes.

What sets the Arles Primes apart is their ability to achieve an IMAX-like depth of field at T/1.4.

Matt Bendo CSC, AIC


"The combination of the Arri Alexa LF and these lenses allows for a depth of field comparable to that of large format lenses used on 65mm cameras, but with the added benefit of a faster T-stop. The images have a painterly quality and perform incredibly well wide open at T/1.4, making these lenses feel like a vital part of my creative toolkit, allowing me to tell my stories with unmatched visual impact."

The Arles primes were a pleasant surprise for me.

Vincent Gallot, AFC


"There are no compromises in the technical qualities of the Arles. They have their own identity, giving them a place in their own right among lenses dedicated to film shooting. Their typicality is expressed differently on the sensors of the major camera brands, allowing me to imagine several different looks, several different alchemies, while retaining the particular, organic suavity of Arles primes."
