I see on the ePHOTOZINE main site IRIX are holding a competition for macro users the winners of which get to test their new lens for a month.

As we have a few really good macro posters on here thought it might be of interest.

I don't do the social media they mention so no good to me otherwise i'd have entered as well.

Well spotted, and thanks for sharing,
I'm not holding my breath, but fingers crossed. Bit of a lottery I'd say.
👍👍👍
I know what i like, If not always why.

I have to say I had you particularly in mind Derek...definitely worth a shot i'd say and the lens looks potentially very promising.

Good luck if you do.

Plenty of fantastic macro shooters on here.

That certainly rules me out then...!! Love Macro photography. Now really appreciate it even more, since trying and failing on many many occasions....

Is that lens available with a Pentax mount?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I see the price of the Irix 150mm macro is going to be a very reasonable 595
If it's as sharp and good as I expect it will be, that's a cracking price.
(To me anyway)
Release date is in December

I'd think that the main issue for you will be the lack of an aperture ring

Never seen tubes with an A setting.

My 180mm Sigma macro has an aperture ring Derek ...
