The primary difference between the two cameras is the latter's ability to reach 54fps with 16v applied. The former will only go to 32fps.

LTR7's as a (fast and loose but not firm) rule are not factory S16 bodies nor are they field switchable. But, many have been converted by now. Late LTR7's and all LTR54's are switchable between S16 and R16.

There are scores of small mechanical changes in during the production of both, so I find it is usually better to evaluate any pre-XTR camera on it's own merits.

The motor is not detachable and swappable in the Arri 16S sense. The viewfinder system is considerably brighter. You should note that a comparison between an Arri 16S and an Aaton LTR is not quite apt. It belongs in the same class as an Arri 16SR.
