Irix has announced the third lens in its cine lens line up - the Irix Cine 45mm T1.5. The new manual-focus prime follows joins the Irix Cine 11mm T4.5 and Cine 150mm T3.0 Macro 1:1 lenses in the range. 

The lens breaks new ground for the company, as this lens is not an adaptation of  one of its existing stills camera lenses (unlike the 11mm and 150mm). The 45mm T1.5 offers a mid-range standard focal length which is said to have been designed with Ultra HD 8K shooting in mind - and therefore ready for the increase in video resolution we are going to see from cinema cameras in the next couple of years.
