Irix introduces super wide-angle 11mm for full-frame DSLRs

A minimal distortion wide angle lens- unique in its class

The Irix 11mm lens is an extremely wide Full Frame rectilinear lens with a 126° angle of view. 4 high refractive lenses, 2 ED lenses and 3 aspherical lenses guarantee minimal distortion, as low as 3.13%, making our 11mm f/4.0 lens absolutely unique in its class.

A lightweight option with no optical compromises

The Irix 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.

Innovative technology encased in a smart design

Torn between smart technology and a classical design? With our Irix Blackstone 11mm f/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, just one of our many ingenious, photographer-friendly developments.

Extreme weather resistance

We know how important it is to protect your gear. Our Irix lenses are made with phenomenal precision. Each Irix lens is equipped with a weather sealed construction which protects the interior against dust and moisture. Thanks to inner seals, our lenses are also protected from accidental water splashes. No matter the journey, you can be confident that our weather sealed lenses will offer you maximum resistance to the extremes."
