Irix lenses are made with extreme precision. Each Irix lens is equipped with a weather sealed construction that protects the interior against dust and moisture. Thanks to inner seals, our lenses are also protected from accidental water splashes.
Despite the short focal length and large aperture, we provide not only a front filter thread with a window in the petal-shape lens hood, but we also add a rear gelatin filter slot to give you even many more options in image creation.
