It seems like not too long ago we reviewed the Irix Cine 45mm, and we were blown away by the outstanding performance. Just a couple of months later, we managed to get one of the brand new Irix Cine 15mm T2.6. And Let me tell you, if this is the pace and quality of the lenses, Irix is a force to be reckoned within the industry.
Irix has recently expanded their cinema line of lenses by the addition of a new wide-angle lens, the 15mm T2.6. We have received one of the first batches of this lens, and we started putting it to the test. The results so far are very promising.
As of right now, IRIX has 3 Lenses in their cine-lens lineup. They have the 45mm T1.5, which we reviewed here, the 150mm T3.0, and their 11mm T4.3. With the addition of their new 15mm T2.6, we see that IRIX is slowly building quite the portfolio of lenses. At first, I wondered if the 15mm would maybe be a little too wide and close to the 11mm. However, after some thinking, I thought that this lens would have a lot of use-cases for super 35 and my Blackmagic P4k.
Irix has today announced the addition of the new Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 to their cinema lens lineup. Teased a few days ago, it joins the 11mm T4.3, 45mm T1.5 and 150mm T3.0 Macro lenses in the Irix range of cinema lenses. Irix says that it’s designed for super-high-resolution 8K video, with minimal distortion, and compact and lightweight construction.
Like most cinema lenses, it features built-in toothed gears on the focus and aperture rings for use with follow focus systems and is weather sealed to stand up to a wide range of shooting environments. It’s available in several popular mounts, including Canon EF, Sony E, Micro Four Thirds and PL.
