Irix extends the Cine Lens series with an ultra-wide-angle Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 lens for Canon EF, Sony E, Micro Four Thirds, and PL mount. It is a fast and versatile lens that works in a variety of lighting conditions and is designed to shoot with a maximum resolution of 8K UHD.
The Irix Cine 15mm T2.6 optical system consists of 15 elements arranged in 11 groups (including 3 HR lenses, 2 ED, and 2 ASPH). According to the manufacturer, the lens provides beautiful and vibrant colors, image clarity, and minimal distortion, despite an extremely wide field of view.
These new Irix Cine lenses are used by both professional operators and amateurs alike. By minimizing the phenomenon of diffraction, the lens aperture (made of 9 rounded blades), provides a sharp image, regardless of the T value. The precise mechanics allow adjustment of the T value from T2.6 to T22.
As with other Irix Cine lenses, this lens is equipped with an innovative focus ring with an angle of rotation up to 180 degrees for accurate and smooth focus movement, and also has protection against dust and moisture.
