Why choose the Irix 150mm 
f/2.8 Macro 1:1?

  • chevron_rightModern design

    The lens has a modern optical scheme to achieve the best possible image quality to unleash your creativity.

  • chevron_rightUser-friendly solutions

    In Irix we believe that the lens is not only a tool – it’s a way to capture the image so we included many friendly solutions in it like Focus Lock feature, wide and rubberized Focusing Ring, Notch at Focusing Ring, 34cm of minimal focusing distance, tripod collar with Arca Swiss standard foot and perfectly formed Hard Case for the lens.

  • chevron_rightWeather sealed and durable

    We know that you want to be in places where no one was so we make our lens perfectly weather sealed and robust.

The lens which communicates with your camera

The Irix 150mm f/2.8 lens fully communicates with the camera because of its electronic module (AE):

  • Focus confirmation – the camera will inform you when properly set the focus point
  • Aperture control straight from the camera
  • Auto-exposure measurements with all cameras
  • semi-automatic modes (PASM)
  • All exposure parameters are saved in EXIF data
  • chevron_rightSmooth and precise focusing

    Because of mid-telephoto focal length and a fast aperture of f/2.8, the depth-of-field is shallow so focusing must be smooth and precise. To ensure high comfort of use the lens has a wide rubberized focusing ring with a special notch which combined with a rotational angle of 270 degrees provides quick, easy and precise focus adjustment.

  • chevron_rightMake it fixed

    The Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 offers smooth workflow on macro setup – if we set the focus point once, we can use the Focus Lock ring to lock the whole construction. It’s especially helpful when we’re moving with the lens often – during the walk or studio shoots – but we still want to be sure that the proper reproduction ratio is achieved.

  • chevron_rightThere's no such thing as bad weather

    Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens is equipped with weather sealing in five key places to protect internal parts from unfavourable weather conditions so there are no worries to use it even in harsh environment and weather conditions.

  • chevron_rightPerfectly sealed with constant dimensions

    To seal the entire lens structure even more tightly the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro has internal focusing – the lens doesn’t change its dimensions, so there is no chance to get any dust or moisture inside. Also, the front element of the lens stays in the same working distance from the object when shooting so the lens stays compact and convenient to use.

  • chevron_rightLens Collar

    The Tripod Lens Collar with standard Acra-Swiss plate. The main reason to use a tripod collar is to provide a more sturdy setup without any vibrations when magnified in macro photos.
