Irix has revealed some more details of its next prime lens for photographers – a 45mm f/1.4 standard lens. It will be the stills equivalent of the Irix Cine 45mm T1.5, which was announced in October last year. 

The full-frame DSLR lens fits between the classic 35mm and 50mm focal lengths, offering a field of view of 50°, creating the unusual 45mm focal length.
