innovative technology
encased in a smart design

Torn between smart technology and a classical design? With our Irix Blackstone 15mm f/2.4 lens, you can have both.

We have matched timeless design decisions with maximum functionality to offer you the perfect piece of durable technology. The solid aluminium and magnesium body ensures foolproof lens protection, even in the most extreme situations. Easy operation is achieved in all lighting conditions thanks to our engraved fluorescent markings and infinity click, just some of our many ingenious, photographer-friendly developments.

a lightweight option
with no optical compromises

Our Firefly lens offers the same optical performance and high quality mechanism as our Blackstone, but its ultra lightweight construction makes it the perfect choice for hikers, travellers, or anyone who simply likes to pack light.

The ergonomic, anti-slip, rubber coated focus ring makes for a practical, user-friendly lens. This lightweight option is ideal for on the go photography, without any compromise on optical quality.

infinity click
and hyperfocal scale
we have mastered infinity
to the limits
The hyperfocal distance scale simply and intuitively gives information about accessible range for depth of field for a given aperture. When the ring is set in the “infinity” position, there is a noticeable “click”, making it easier to find the value without looking. Now you can fix your eyes on the image and concentrate on the composition.
