- Focus Lock ring
The Focus Lock feature allows you to lock the focus ring in a specific position. This is especially important for landscape photos and repetitive shooting as well as when you want to keep a specific distance from the subject (ie. In-studio or on the street).
Due to the excellent response from Irix shooters to the focus ring we designed for the Irix 150mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro lens, we incorporated a similar one in our Irix 45mm f/1.4 lens. After extensive testing, we have developed a material that provides excellent durability and resistance to weather conditions and which, combined with special embossing, provides outstanding comfort. You’ll find that the “feel” of the hand position on the ring makes focusing even easier.
Ready to shoot in any weather
The best lenses must provide ease of use in all lighting and atmospheric conditions. The Irix 45mm f/1.4 provides for this with laser-engraved focus and aperture markings, filled with UV-reactive paint. This innovation makes them readable even in low-light conditions. Irix weather sealing also assures the reliability of our lenses, protecting the lens interior and the camera sensor from dust and moisture, regardless of the environment and weather.
This lens is equipped with weather sealing in four key places to protect the internal parts from unfavourable weather conditions so there are no worries to use it even in harsh environment and weather conditions.
Build Quality – DRAGONFLY
The Dragonfly finish is the perfect blend of strong metal components and lightweight composite materials. In addition to its rugged construction, the lens is also weather sealed at crucial points, for worry-free use in all environments and weather conditions. Its internal focusing mechanism means it keeps its compact size as you concentrate on the shot.
- Strong internal construction based on metal components
- Anti-scratch finish
- Anti-slip rubberized focusing ring with a special notch
- Engraved markings filled with UV reactive paint
- Superior dust and moisture protection
- Includes a convenient hard case
