Irix PL mount fix

By Geoff

Irix say they have addressed the issue of the PL mount not fitting some cameras. Here is an article from their website from approx 5 months ago. https://blog.irixusa.com/irix-pl-mounts-you-spoke-we-listened/

The image shows a close up of a Lego set using the IRIX 150mm lens. In that picture you can see the small rigs in the gray plastic that is not visible by just looking at it.

Great lens.

I got this lens for high end table top shoots and am very pleased with the quality and the build of the lens. Something I wold normally expect from significantly more expensive cine-macro lenses. It’s a bargen at that price point. The PL mount is a snug fit on my RED DRAGON and the rounded lens cap is a bit of a fail design since you can’t put the lens on its front the way you normally park lens that you don’t want to roll of your desk. But that’s the only downside of it and it didn’t affect the image waltet in any way.

Great Quality & Value

I purchased the IRIX 15mm, 45mm, and 150mm as a set. The image quality is sharp and excellent, the focus and t-stop rings work smoothly and quietly, and the build quality is first class and aesthetically beautiful. I particularly like the water sealing most other brand lenses in this price range do not have. Focus breathing varies between the lenses but minimally and I'm quite happy with them. As other reviewers have mentioned, the curved lens cap is the only disadvantage, preventing positioning any lens face down on a surface with the lens cap on, but that's a minor issue against the superb overall package these lenses provide.

I needed a lightweight, cinema style macro lens for my motion control rig. This works perfectly. At the right price. Very happy

Great image for detail shots

By Lester

Excellent for detail shots. It works as a telephoto lens but focus pull is way to fine beyond a couple of feet away from subject to really rack focus, so I would not recommend using this as a telephoto unless you can fix focus. No complaints as a macro lens though.

Fantastic Cinema Macro Lens

By John

For the price, this lens rocks! If it were three times the price it would still rock! There’s plenty of YouTube video reviews of technical specs, but creatively, I found that this lens gave me a cinematic (subjective, I know), shallow depth of field with crisp focus. Definitely need a focus-puller and stability, but even without the latter, you can pull off some interesting shots. This will be a holy grail lens for product filmmakers, but it’s extremely capable of pulling off some narrative shots. Some test footage: https://vimeo.com/509993097

This lens vs the Sony 90mm OSS macro, what will get a bigger overall image at the minimum focus distance?
Asked by: Zephyr
The IRIX 150mm T3.0 Macro 1:1 Lens will achieve approximately 3.3" by 2.2" at it's closest. The Sony 90mm OSS Macro will achieve approximately 4.4" by 3" at it's closest. Therefore the IRIX 150mm will magnify more.
