Alexa LF and Large Format Signature Primes were announced in February and are working on productions worldwide.

Here are a few updates.
1. ARRI Signature Primes come from the factory in nice aluminum cases that you can actually use on location. No more flimsy factory-issue cardboard boxes.

2. The core set of ARRI Signature Prime Large Format lenses have shipped. They include ARRI Signature Prime 18, 25, 35, 47, 75 and 125 mm lenses.

3. The chart below shows the planned delivery schedule—a new focal length almost every month. The core set is highlighted in yellow. New lenses pretty much arrive every month from now until April 2019.
