Irix has introduced the value and availability of its full-frame 45mm T1.5 lens. The goal was initially introduced in October of final 12 months.
That is the third lens within the collection and it now joins the Irix Cine 150 mm T3 and the Irix Cine 11 mm T4.three.
Most important traits
Common focal size with 51.Four ° discipline of view Appropriate for capturing with Extremely HD 8K decision cameras Full body protection Prime quality optical parts – 11 parts in 9 teams. HR, XLD, ASP produced in Japan Excessive most transmission worth from T1.5 to T22 Cine Mod gears with Zero.eight pitch standardized Very low distortion -Zero.5% Waterproof building ready for all climate situations Compatibility with setting programs to straightforward level and lens management motors Entrance filter thread 86 x 1.Zero mm Normal entrance diameter of 95 mm for cinema equipment Outfitted with a help stand Irix magnetic mounting system Scale of improvement obtainable in metric or imperial models Laser-etched markings full of UV paint Sturdy magnesium and aluminum alloy Weight 1.1 kg / 2.42 lb
The Irix 45mm T1.5 is a full-frame lens (> picture circle 43.three), prepared for 8K with a quick T1.5 aperture. It’s obtainable in 4 helps: Canon EF, Sony E, Olympus / Panasonic MFT and PL mount.
The 45mm T1.5 has 11 optics, 9 iris blades, Zero.eight pitch gears and 180 ° focus rotation. The minimal focusing distance is 40 cm (15.72 ″).
The lens is fitted with a detachable lens hood, however in case you take away it, you may also use any normal 95mm matte housing. The entrance of the lens has an 86mm filter thread.
What’s fascinating is that the entrance of the lens is fitted with a magnetic mounting system for straightforward set up of extra equipment, beginning with the lens hood solar included.
A lens base (included within the package) can be utilized with a normal 1⁄Four-20 mounting thread. All future Irix Cine lenses could have the identical gear peak to facilitate fast and simple swapping.
The lens weighs 1.1 kg (2.42 lb) and has bodily dimensions of 112 mm x 97 mm.
Irix claims that the lens has a small quantity of targeted respiratory.
Worth and availability
The lens can be delivered to sellers in January 2020 and the prompt retail costs are as follows:
● EF Irix 45mm T1.5 Canon mount € 1,195 (VAT incl.) / US $ 1,195
● Sony E 45 mm T1.5 Irix mount € 1,195 (VAT incl.) / US $ 1,195
● Irix 45mm T1.5 Olympus / Panasonic MFT help 1195 € (VAT incl.) / US $ 1195
● Irix 45mm T1.5 Arri PL body 1295 € (VAT incl.) / US $ 1295
Whichever means you take a look at it, the Irix 45mm T1.5 is cheap for a film lens. At $ 1,295 USD in a PL mount, I doubt you could find a quicker full-frame 45mm movie lens anyplace.
45mm just isn’t a typical focal size. The one different 45mm cine lens available on the market I can consider is the Leitz Cine THALIA 45mm T2.9 PL cine lens.
Irix appears rather a lot like Laowa, they notice there isn’t any level in providing lenses which can be already there, so as an alternative, they concentrate on their very own factor.
As evidenced by the Irix Cine package deal, which now consists of a 150mm macro, an extremely vast angle of 11mm and now a premium of 45mm. My solely concern is that, with out having any type of actual lens set, how properly would the 45mm match the opposite lenses you utilize?
