The extensive detuning and personalization that was pioneered with Prime DNAs for 65 mm cinematography informed the look of DNA LFs for full frame. It is a balanced and characterful look, full of life and gentler than many modern lenses. Focus fall-off is natural and pleasing, highlights are mellow, bokeh is attractive, and the flare characteristics offer great scope for creativity, responding organically to direct light sources.
While Prime DNA lenses for the larger ALEXA 65 format can be used on full-frame cameras, only the central part of the image circle is utilized. This eliminates some of the interesting image elements at the edges and corners of the DNA frame, which are so revered by filmmakers. This is why we offer DNA LF lenses that are purpose-made for the full frame sensor size.
