Lens manufacturer Irix has released the details of its new 45mm F1.4 Dragonfly lens for Fujifilm GFX camera systems.
The manual 45mm F1.4 Dragonfly lens offers a 35mm full-frame-equivalent field of view (62.64º) when used on Fujifilm’s GFX medium format cameras. It’s constructed of eleven elements in nine groups, including one aspherical element, one extra-low dispersion element and four high-refractive elements. The lens offers an aperture range from F1.4 to F22, has a minimum focusing distance of 40cm (15.75”), uses a nine-blade aperture diaphragm and has a 77mm front filter thread.
The lens is constructed of a magnesium housing and uses seals in five ‘key areas’ for improved protection against the elements. It features a smooth aperture ring and its focus ring offers 170º of rotation in addition to a focus lock switch. Irix also says the lens features less than 1% distortion. Its measurements come in at 87mm (3.43”) diameter, 144mm (5.67”) long and it weighs 1120g (2.47lbs).
The Irix 45mm F1.4 Dragonfly lens for Fujifilm GFX camera systems is available to pre-order for $795 (Adorama).
