Irix have been producing some pretty outstanding lenses over the last few years for what they cost, bringing us 11mm T4.3, 15mm T2.6, 30mm T1.5, 45mm T1.5 and 150mm T3.0 macro (or f/4, f/2.4, f/1.4, f/1.4 and f/2.8 respectively for their photography alternatives). But there are a few noticeable gaps in that focal length lineup. Jumping from 15mm to 30mm is a pretty big leap.
Well, today, Irix has announced the new Irix Cine 21mm T1.5 to help bridge that gap a little. This full-frame lens offers the same level of quality and construction you’ve come to expect from the other lenses in the Irix lineup and Irix says that it’s built to offer the kind of detail and sharpness that something like 8K resolution video requires.
