how does this lens compare to the Sigma 150 2.8 macro os ?
Asked by: Ron
The IRIX 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 Lens is a weather resistant manual focus Macro lens with sharp glass and a haze coating to create more contrast in the images. The 1.1" minimum focusing distance for the IRIX lens is similar to the 1.25" for the Sigma lens. The Sigma APO Macro 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Lens is a auto focus lens with a image stabilization, in a well built, (not as weather resistant as the IRIX), lens body. The Sigma specs say: " The optical design employs three SLD elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color rendering. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions" Both lenses will work fine for macro photography, the Sigma is autofocus, more durable and offers more edge sharpness. The IRIX focuses closer and cost a bit less.

Asked by: Raphael
Technically the F/stop in the IRIX 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 Lens for Canon EF should be controlled through the BlackMagic 6k. But that specific lens has not been tested and the manufacture does not list it.

YES! I use it on my Panasonic S1r. I noticed a little stiffness when placing the adapter on at first but it was nothing to worry about.

Would the viewfinder on EOS R bodies blackout during exposure or will changing the aperture on the lens reflect correctly in the viewfinder and LCD screen?
Asked by: Arsalan
With the Eos R cameras you the EVF displays the same information that you see in Live View, and you can preview exposure settings. You can also use the LCD. This is part of what makes it great for astrophotography.
