I'm looking to get a set of primes (16mm, 25mm, 50mm) in an arriflex standard mount. I'm wondering what are the best lenses or what people like to work with the best? Zeiss, Angenieux, etc?

If you can afford it, get a set of Zeiss Super Speeds. They are fast and sharp as a tack.

Oh, I'm not sure if they ever came in Arri standard mount though. Perhaps the Mk 1 series did . . .

For ARRI standard mount, a set of Zeiss primes or a set of Cooke Kinetal primes. I have gotten good results from both. You can see samples of images shot with the Cooke 12.5, 17.5 and 25, as well as the Zeiss 8mm, all in ARRI standard mount, shot with an Arriflex 16S camera, at the link below:

For comparison, here is Steve Hyde's clip using an Angenieux zoom:

Looks great. So, here's my next question. I'm planning on using these arri standard mount lenses with both an arri s, and an adapter from arri standard to a cp-16r. Does anyone know how well that adapter works? Ie., if it's worth getting?
