Earlier this year, Irix finally announced the long-awaited 45mm f/1.4 “Dragonfly” lens. But it looks like we’ll see more new gear from the Swiss lens manufacturer. Another lens is coming soon, and the company has just released a teaser.
I’ve first seen the IRIX cine 45mm at PPE last year, when tradeshows were still a thing. On paper, it looked incredibly impressive for $1,200 so I was really hoping to take it for a spin. A few weeks ago, I got my hands on one and took it for a ride. TL;DR – The IRIX 45mm cine in an amazing deal for its price, with some nice features and a look that reminds me of the Zeiss CP.2 signature look.
