Irix has announced its new Irix 30mm f/1.4 – a manual-focus prime lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K DSLRs.

The Irix 30mm f/1.4 is based on the design of the firm’s recent and rather good cine prime, the Irix Cine 30mm T1.5. It’s made for full-frame sensors and, while it’s only available for DSLR mounts, the fact that Irix shows the lens adapted to the mirrorless EOS R in the press shots suggests that it's counting on broad appeal.
