Thread: Irix 11mm f4 review -up at Ephotozine

    Default Irix 11mm f4 review -up at Ephotozine

    Since this is another wide angle option for K-mount (supposed at a good price), it should be of interest to some here.

    Summary :

    "What an exciting lens the Irix 11mm f/4 Firefly is. It opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities in a well-made, well-designed package that delivers the image quality. It will not be for everybody, perhaps because of the ultra-wide style of the images, or maybe because of difficulties using the manual focus system, but if the lens appeals to the individual photographer's creativity then it will be a rewarding experience."

    Of course being Pentaxians, manual focus difficulties are irrelevant.

    JK, the fact is who need to focus on full frame camera with lens wider than 20mm!

    Yeah, exactly!

    In fact I find that for these UWA, MF is my preferred way of working with them.
