Hello, back in 2011 I started a project with a Red One MX and ultraprimes. Now I want to complete that project, the Red Scarlet MX is problably the more similar option to the Red One MX. I prefer to work with a zoom this time

What would be a similar zoon lens to the Ultraprimes? I am watching to the Arri alura zooms, is this the right option?

All the Arri branded lenses are meant to be colour matched, so Aluras should be close to Ultraprimes. You could also use Zeiss zooms. Angenieux Optimos have been matched with Ultraprimes on countless features because of their optical excellence, even if they have slightly different colour rendition.

Here's David Mullen's answer to this exact question back in 2010:

I used to work on a couple of TV shows in the UK that used Ultra Primes along with Aluras. They seemed to match pretty well.
