Just less than a week after announcing the Canon RF mount for their cinema lens line, Irix now announces that they’ve added another two: Nikon Z and Leica L mounts – totaling seven mount options.
These three new mount offerings are a fantastic option for those that want to use Irix lenses on mirrorless camera bodies without the need for clunky adapters. This provides a more robust solution that will dramatically reduce the play between the lens and camera but at the expense of versatility. Snagging the lenses in EF or PL mount is still going to be the most versatile option sine you COULD simply use adapters to get to any of these mirrorless mounts; Sony E, Sigma L, Canon RF, or Nikon Z. The new mount options don’t change anything optically so you can expect the same image quality as the other mount options.
Irix Cine lenses are now available for purchase from Duclos Lenses in Canon RF, Nikon Z and Leica-L mounts, complementing the existing set consisting of Sony E, Canon EF, Arri PL and Micro 4/3 mounts.
