The world’s fastest mirrorless camera lens is getting ready to ship worldwide. Handevision’s insanely wide 40mm f0.85 prime lens is now officially in stock according to a press release first spotted by Mirrorless Rumors. With a maximum aperture of f0.85, the lens owns even the fastest Voigtlander glass like the 17.5mm f0.95 and 25mm f0.95 hands down.
As we all may well know, mirrorless cameras with a sensor smaller than full-frame have a larger depth of field even if they are used with lenses set to the same aperture as their full-frame equivalents. It’s for this reason that lenses made for smaller sensors need to have even larger apertures such as the Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 to resolve that sweet, creamy bokeh photographers crave.
The Handevision 40mm f0.85 is available through some German eBay shops already, and it can be had for € 1,799 or roughly US-$ 2,443. The lens is available in a variety of mounts for Fujifilm X cameras, Sony E mount, Canon’s EOS-M system, as well as Micro Four Third cameras from Olympus and Panasonic.
