IRIX 45mm T1.5 Cine (ft) Reviews

Great lens

Great lens I have reviewed the first one I purchased. Bought another one for my second camera.

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.

Pretty but disappointed

My initial viewing of the video I got from the lens was great. But the aperture ring is loose and grinds a little. Which right out of the box is just awful. Not sure how this passed quality control or if it’s normal. Either way it’s going back.

Best value Cine lens by far

8K sharpness, weatherproof, low focus breathing, solid metal build quality, 180 degree focus throw. The list of features go on and on. For the price I have never found a lens like this. I compared for months Sigma Art series, SLR Magic’s, Zeiss Milvus. Personally this lens should sit next to higher price brackets like Sigma Cine, New XEENs, Zeiss CP2’s. Having this lens for a week I can say this lens lives up to every feature. Shooting on my Pocket 6K this thing makes it feel like I have a whole new camera or at least like I’m finally taking full advantage of my sensor. Can’t recommend this lens enough. I plan on buying the brand new 15mm Cine and the 150mm Cine macro all 3 will be the price of a single average priced Cine lens!

Disappointed with the quality

I am disappointed with the quality. I received a damaged box, a poorly packaged lens, dirty on the outside and also on the glass. The small bag between the glass and the lens cap??? The lens cap is also very lousse and falls off easily ... I'm really disappointed with the quality of the packaging especially for a lens at this price.

Sharp as a tack!

I was a little bit skeptical about buying this lens at first considering that I've never heard of Irix before. However, don't let that stop you. This lens is extremely sharp, even at wide-open!!! The footage you can get with this lens at T1.5 is crazy! Not to mention that this lens doesn't have any noticeable color fringing, and is constructed out of a solid metal exterior, and doesn't flare at all when in direct sunlight. If you're looking for a budget cinema lens that punches a lot higher than its price, I can't recommend this lens enough.

I did a comparison between the Canon CNE 35mm and the IRIX 45mm and if you were not told you could not tell the difference. The sharpness, chromatic aberration, Lens flares, and bokeh looked really similar.

Excellent Lens

First impressions, this lens is well built the focus and aperture rings have a nice resistance. I am having so much fun with this lens, it has interesting characteristics. The lens so super crisp.

Is the lens mount user-swappable?
Asked by: Robert
This lens is not user-swappable. I recommend going to Duclos Lenses for professional mount conversion and calibration. They offer the IRIX lenses in ARRI PL, Canon EF/RF, L-Mount, Micro 4/3, Nikon Z, and Sony E mounts.
