Irix Lenses

I'm looking for a prime lens and came across theirs at a considerably good price.

https://www.amazon.com/Irix-45mm-1-4...s%2C229&sr=1-3

I think they have a new one, GFX? But I could be wrong. I'm wondering if anyone has used their lenses and their thoughts behind the company.

TIA.

Some reviews online. How well it works depends on your camera, resolution and type of photography. There were some people talking about astro-photography as a target market for this lens.

This one shows the visual quality from a qualitative perspective.

I wanted an ultra-wide and looked at buying their 11mm. It seems like a decent lens for the price. Ultimately I ended up buying 14-24 for Nikon F because it is 2.8 and it was on sale and since those are most of the bodies that I have. For a review of the Irix try

One thing to consider is if you will want to use filters. I forget which Irix it is but I seem to remember one of them would take rear gel filters.
