Comes Fully-Equipped

The gateway to the world of macro photography

With a focal length of 150mm and a 1:1 magnification ratio, the lens is ideal for shooting insects, plants, jewelry, and other small objects. Whether you are a professional or an amateur, the Irix 150mm macro 1:1 will let you discover the fascinating world of macro photography.

Optics that guarantee sharp photos

One of the most important elements of this lens is the high-quality optics. It is constructed with 12 lenses arranged in 9 groups, including three low-dispersion lenses that eliminate chromatic aberrations and ensure natural, beautiful colors in your photos. In addition, special anti-reflective Neutrino Coatings reduce reflections and flare, improving image contrast and sharpness. The use of 11 rounded diaphragm blades allows for a beautiful bokeh effect, minimizing diffraction.

Ready for Any Conditions

It doesn’t matter if your traversing the hot sands of the Sachara or covering the vast expanse of Antarctica – this lens will endure any challenge.

The sealing system has been designed to protect the inside of the lens from moisture, dust, and sand. The lens is equipped with an internal focusing system, meaning it does not change its physical size during focusing.

The whole body remains solid and study, and ready to operate in all conditions.

A Build You Can Trust

The Irix 150mm macro 1:1 lens is also characterized by a solid construction (Dragonfly finish version). The body is made of magnesium aluminum alloy combined with a high-quality composite. This ensures durability and resistance to weather conditions with relatively low weight. Dust and moisture resistance mean you can confidently use this lens outdoors, even in harsh atmospheric conditions.

Intelligent Lens Design

The Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 has a module that allows you to control the lens iris directly from the camera, thanks to which popular semi-automatic modes (PASM), and data recording in EXIF format are available.

The use of electronics also enables the lens to be equipped with a focus confirmation system – the camera will confirm the proper focus distance (either in the form of an icon in the viewfinder or sound), every time you set the focus correctly – it’s really easy!

Additional features

Focus Lock – allows you to lock the focusing ring in a specific position, which is extremely beneficial when you want to be sure you set the correct magnification ratio, e.g. 1: 1 while shooting.

„Click / Declick” switch – that allows you to choose between the gradual and smooth operation of the aperture ring.

Tripod clamp with foot (Arca Swiss standard) – macro photography requires extraordinary precision. We have good news for all photographers using a tripod: thanks to the tripod clamp, you can safely and securely attach your camera to the lens. Thanks to this solution, the center of gravity of the camera lens remains neutral, and the vibrations associated with focusing and operating the camera are minimized.

Focus ring – when shooting small elements, depth of field usually covers only a few millimeters or less, so it is important that sharpening is precise. The rotation angle of the focus ring on the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 is as much as 270 degrees, guaranteeing extremely smooth and precise sharpening.

Focus ring ergonomics – after tireless testing, we have developed a material characterized by its high mechanical strength and resistance to adverse conditions. Special texturing allows for reliable and precise focusing, and  dedicated embossing allows you to feel the position of the ring, making sharpening even easier.

Compatible with filters

The Irix 150mm f/2.8 lens allows the use of classic screw-in filters (77mm) and square filters, thanks to the Irix Edge IFH-100 mount.

The use of filters in landscape photography allows you to awaken your creativity and achieve amazing effects, which makes them extremely practical.

Wild Macro

„The Irix 150mm Dragonfly is a great lens, no question. Build quality and optical quality are on the top level.”


Lost in Woodlands

"This lens offers us sharp shots, without distortions or strange aberrations and ensures us excellent quality results."


Julien Tuyeras

"Par rapport au Canon 100 mm L IS mk II, ce macro est plus léger, 66% moins cher ( 549,00€ à l'heure ou j'écris cette review), mieux construit et avec des matériaux très robuste, offre un meilleur bokeh, est plus facile à manier et est livré avec un étui moulé et un collier avec plaque compatible Arca-Swiss, ce qui en fait un vrai plus pour les amateurs de photographie animalière."


COLORFOTO - Das Profi-Magazin für digitale Fotografie - PC Magazin

"520 Euro für ein 2,8/150-mm-KB-Objektiv klingt interessant(...). Bei Blende 5,6 sehen wir mittig sehr gute Werte."


Michał Ludwiczak

"Jeśli cenicie sobie sprzęty dopracowane i piękne, a jednocześnie szukacie obiektywu stricte do makrofotografii, to Irix 150/2.8 jest bardzo dobrą opcją. Większa odległość od fotografowanego obiektu, możliwość mocniejszego rozmycia tła, solidność wykonania i wzorowa ergonomia to jego podstawowe plusy."



"Irix 150 mm f/2.8 to bez wątpienia świetny obiektyw makro, który daje dużą swobodę pracy na małe odległości. Duża odległość robocza w połączeniu z długą ogniskową, bardzo precyzyjnym pierścieniem ostrości (który dodatkowo możemy zablokować) i mocowaniem statywowym sprawiają, że praca w kontrolowanych warunkach będzie zwyczajnie wygodna."


Digital Photographer

This lens provides images with high resolution and punchy natural colour. Contrast is high, and with good light, no enhancement of this is required.


Foto Hits

"Das Objektiv bietet zum fairen Preis eine sehr hohe Leistung. Der massive Aufbau inklusive O-Ring-Abdichtungen erlaubt den problemlosen Außeneinsatz. Die manuelle Fokussierung ist feinfühlig und arbeitet präzise"



German review of the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens.


Nikon Rumors

✔️ extremely sharp lens
✔️ excellent correction of lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberration
✔️ no visible distortion
✔️ nice bokeh
✔️ internal focus
✔️ weather-sealing
✔️ CPU-contacts
✔️ 11 rounded aperture blades


Micael Widell

✔️ The lens is very sharp
✔️ The bokeh rendering is very beautiful and nice - it just looks good



"Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 - unique modern, manual focus macro lens. It has a very high build quality and very high optical characteristics. Irix 150 / 2.8 shows very low distortion, very low chromatic aberration (they are practically absent!) and slight vignetting."


Stewart Wood

"Oh my God... Would Irix notice if I didn’t send the lens back?!"


The Phoblographer

"What I’m most shocked by is the sharpness. I didn’t expect this lens to be that sharp. The bokeh is just beautiful and the feeling of the images is very organic. There is no micro-contrast or trickery: it’s just the pop from the 11 aperture blades and the sharpness that the lens renders. The title of this piece calls this lens The Bokeh King, and it indeed really is."



"If you need a medium zoom with macro facilities, then the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro Dragonfly is definitely worth shortlisting."


Digi Foto Pro

"De Irix Dragonfly 150mm f/2.8 macro lens is simpelweg een pracht exemplaar. Hij voelt soepel, contrastrijk en ongelofelijk scherp."


Dustin Abbott

"The incredibly reasonably price means that the Irix 150M has a great price-to-performance ratio, and if you are primarily looking for a super sharp, beautifully handling macro lens to use for macro, then by all means, go for the Irix."


Digital Camera World

"If you're after a well-specified macro lens with a longer than average focal length for shooting easily-spooked subjects like insects, the 150mm Dragonfly is a great choice."


Blog Foto24

"Para mí es un objetivo indispensable que no sale de la mochila. Pero si ya voy pensando en retratos, es que posiblemente ni siquiera se despegue de la montura de la cámara."


Ken Rockwell

"This is the best macro lens short of the masterpiece Canon EF 180mm f/3.5 L Macro and Nikon 200mm f/4 Micro-Nikkor AF-D."



"We expect macro lenses to be good, and the results from this Irix lens easily live up to our expectations. Sharpness centrally is very good at f/2.8, excellent from f/4 through to f/8, very good at f/11 and f/16, good at f/22 and fair at f/32. There is no doubt that there will be many photographers who will be delighted by the arrival of the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro lens."
