IRIX 15mm f2.4 Lens Review

We recently went to BBC MediaCity to shoot some images using the Irix 15mm ultra wide lens. The video below shows the lens features, photographers opinion and end results. The new CP-L and ND1000 filters were also used. Click below to see the video.


During the shoot, Andy Astbury used the Irix EDGE filters to produce some amazing results. He combined the Circular Polariser and ND1000 with the IRIX 15mm lens. We didn’t get the chance to review the filters in the video due to the adverse weather conditions. However, Andy and his son Richard ventured out to Howden reservoir, in the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia, to shoot some images with the Irix EDGE filters. Click here to read Andy’s opinion and view the results from the day.

And the results..

“I really do rate this lens, it really impressed me, with next to no distortion and virtually zero chromatic aberration.”
You can stack the filters to use the ND and polariser together.”
“i’ll never use my trusty nikon 14-24 for astro photography ever again.”
