With Cine Optical Properties

Irix 30mm f/1.4 lens is a product based on the 30mm Cine model, and therefore intended for the much more demanding film industry market. The entire optical structure of the lens is identical in both versions – the main emphasis here is on the vividness of the image. Of course, the photographic version has a completely different housing, while retaining the optical properties of the cine version.

Optics that guarantee sharp images

The Irix 30mm f/1.4 features a modern optical design that includes 3 ultra-low dispersion glass elements, 2 high refractive elements and one aspherical lens. There are a total of 13 elements in 9 groups that provide sharp details, vivid colors and ultra-low distortion – 0.95%. However, what deserves special attention is the smoothness and “cine look” of the image it offers. The lens is designed to work with 35mm full frame sensors. It is worth emphasizing the use of a new, 11-blade design aperture with rounded edges, which ensures a pleasant and very vivid background blur. It works in the range of f/1.4 to f/16.

A Build You Can Trust

Irix customers often use their lenses in extremely difficult conditions. Therefore, the construction of the Irix 30mm f/1.4 lens had to meet their needs. Only the best materials were used. The guarantee of operation in all conditions is ensured by a system of seals located in key places of the lens, and rear focusing – thanks to which the lens does not change its dimensions while focusing. These properties allow not only to work in difficult conditions, but also guarantee the cleanliness of the mirror chamber and the sensor of the camera you are using.

Ready for Any Conditions


The lens housing is a continuation of the Dragonfly manufacturing standard known from earlier Irix models (45mm and 150mm). It’s most important aspects are:

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

Intelligent Lens Design

The Irix 30mm f/1.4 lens 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 announce the correct focus setting (either in the form of an icon in the viewfinder, or as a sound) every time you set the focus correctly – it’s easy and convenient!

Additional Features

Focusing Ring – A special focusing ring with a characteristic shape has become a kind of hallmark of Irix 150mm and 45mm lenses. Many of our clients pay attention to the convenience it provides. The newest Irix 30mm is following same way. Special texturing and properly selected rubber material which covers it, allows for reliable and precise focusing. Dedicated emboss lets you to feel the ring’s position. This makes focusing even easier!

“Focus Lock” function – The Focus Lock function is also a hallmark of Irix lenses – it allows you to lock the focusing ring in a specific position. It’s especially useful when you want to keep a specific distance to the photographed object (zone-focusing) or you want to keep perfect focus at infinity in landscape photography or astrophotography.

Compatible with filters

The Irix 30mm f/1.4 lens allows the use of classic screw-in filters (86mm) and square filters, thanks to the Irix Edge IFH-100 and IFH-100-PRO mount.

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

"Ziemlich gute verarbeitung"
"Verzeichnung hat dieses Objektiv kaum"
"Das Bokeh wirklich toll und cremig, nähmlich dank 11 abgerundeten Blendenlammelen"



"In my opinion if you decide to buy the Irix you will be a happy and satisfied user as it is a very well-put-together lens."


Photography News

"With its versatile focal length and fast aperture, the Irix 30mm f/1.4 has great appeal. It’s competitively priced for the specification, rugged build and optical performance."



"Att använda objektivet är enkelt, roligt och ger ett riktigt bra resultat. Den mjuka oskräpan från de nio rundade bländarbladen ger tillsammans med brännvidden gör att objektivet passar bra till porträtt."


Digital Camera World

"Overall the lens fills its niche well, however, and if speed is not your priority you’ll love the Irix 30mm f/1.4 Dragonfly for its cinematic images and palatable pricing."



"Irix przyzwyczaił już nas do wysokiej jakości swoich obiektywów - zarówno w zakresie mechaniki, jak i optyki, kusząc przy tym także niewygórowaną ceną."


Christopher Frost

"It's a little while since we've heard from Irix, and they're continuing to plough the increasingly lonely field of launching lenses for Digital SLR cameras. Let's see what this interesting new lens can do."
