Irix 21mm T1.5 Cine lens


IRIX’s 6th lens in their cinema line, the 21mm T1.5 is a very welcome addition.  21mm’s have a reputation as being expensive (Contax 21mm anyone?), so this may fill a void in the market for a fast, affordable 21mm cine lens.

Key specifications:

  • Full frame
  • Weather sealed
  • Very low focus breathing
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Compatible with other Irix lenses
  • Almost no distortion
  • 7 mounts, including mirrorless
  • 15 elements in 11 groups
  • 11-blade iris construction
  • US$1,195 ($1,295 for the PL mount)
