Optical Performance

Looking for a new lens with a classic focal length for your camera? Defy all standards! A 45mm focal length lets you look at the world differently which combined with a fast f/1.4 aperture will make you more creative as well. The Irix 45mm f/1.4 was designed to create sharp images even wide open at f/1.4. The lens is equipped with a 9 rounded aperture diaphragm ensuring the out-of-focus area (bokeh) stays smooth and pleasant to the eye.


Build Quality – DRAGONFLY Main Features:

  • • Strong internal construction based on metal components
  • • Anti-scratch finish
  • • Anti-slip rubberized focusing ring with a special notch
  • • Engraved markings filled with UV reactive paint
  • • Superior dust and moisture protection
  • • Equipped with a convenient hard case


At Irix, we follow the principle that a lens is not only a tool for photography - it’s also about the entire process of creating a photo, which is greatly influenced by the joy of using lenses. That’s why we pay attention to the design and ergonomics for Irix products.

Dragonfly is a combination of metal elements combined with composite components, making the entire construction not only strong but also lightweight. In addition to its reinforced construction, the lens is also weather-sealed in crucial points, which in conjunction with its internal focusing mechanism, means that you can use it without any difficulty in all environments and weather conditions.

Focus Ring

We know how much you like the focus ring we designed for the Irix 150mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro lens, so we decided to use a similar one in our Irix 45mm f/1.4 lens. After extensive testing, we have developed a material that provides excellent durability and resistance to weather conditions, which, combined with special embossing, directly affects its comfort of use. After some time, the user can feel the position on the ring, thanks to which focusing becomes even easier.


Focus Lock

The Focus Lock feature allows you to lock the focus ring in a specific position. This is especially important when taking landscape photos, and also when you want to keep a specific distance from the subject (ie. In-studio or on the street).

Ready to shoot in any weather

The hi-class lenses must provide high comfort of use in all lighting and atmospheric conditions. This is the Irix 45mm f/1.4, which focus and aperture markings are laser engraved and filled with UV-reactive paint. This process makes them readable even in low-light environment. The comfort of work with Irix lenses is also guaranteed by the system of rubber seals and other solutions that, regardless of the environment and weather, protect its interior and the camera sensor from dust and splashes.

Available mounts

The Irix 45mm f/1.4 lens is available in Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K mounts.

Price and availability
