Optical Properties

Are you looking for a new classic focal length lens? Defy all standards! The 45mm focal length will let you capture the world more creatively than a standard 35mm and 50mm focal length. At the same time, the fast aperture of f/1.4 will allow you to effectively separate the subject from the background. The Irix 45mm f/1.4 lens was designed to produce an extremely sharp image at aperture value. Thanks to the 9-rounded aperture blades, the areas outside the depth of field remain smooth; the bokeh is clean and beautiful.




  • Reinforced internal construction based on metal elements
  • Scratch-resistant finish
  • Anti-slip focusing ring with a special finish for easy focusing
  • Engraved markings filled with UV reactive paint
  • Sealings to protect against dust and water
  • Hardcase included



At Irix, we believe that a lens is not just a tool in the hands of a photographer. The overall impression of the photo creation process is also important to us. The lens has to be fun and easy to use! That is why the ergonomics and design of our products are so important to us.

The Dragonfly version is a combination of reinforced metal and composite elements. This combination has resulted in an extremely durable, compact structure, which thanks to numerous seals, remains resistant to adverse weather conditions.





Focus Ring

We know how much you liked the focus ring on the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens, so we decided to use a similar one on the 45mm f/1.4 lens. After many tests, we have developed a ring material characterized by its high mechanical strength and resistance to harsh conditions. Its special texturing allows for reliable and precise focusing, and dedicated embossed dimples allow you to feel the position of the ring, making focusing even easier.


Focus Lock

Focus Lock allows you to lock the focus ring in a specific position. This is especially useful when we want to maintain a specific distance to the subject (zone-focusing), or when we want to maintain perfect focus on infinity during landscape photography.




Ready for any excursion

            A high quality lens must be ready to work in all conditions. Therefore, the Irix 45mm f/1.4 lens is designed without compromise- only the best materials are used. The guarantee of operation in all conditions is ensured by a sealing system located in key areas of the lens, as well as the fixed external dimensions of the lens, even during focusing. These properties not only allow you to work in difficult conditions, but also guarantee the cleanliness of the mirror chamber and camera sensor.




Available mounts:

The Irix 45mm f/1.4 is available in Nikon F, Canon EF i Pentax K mounts.
