The IRIX 15mm f/2.4 lens we first introduced you to back in March at The Photography Show is now available to order. The first shipments of both Blackstone and Firefly versions of the lens are on their way to distributors and retailers throughout Europe. Unfortunately, folks in the USA will have to wait a little while longer before they see them cross the Atlantic.
Swiss lens makers, IRIX have released two versions of hte lens. There’s the 695EUR Blackstone, and the 475EUR Firefly. Both versions contain the same optics, but the more expensive Blackstone also features a solid alloy housing and better weather sealing. The Firefly has a plastic housing, so that lower budget shooters can still get their hands on one.
