Handevision Announces Super Fast Ibelux 40mm f0.85 Lens for Mirrorless Cameras

Handevision Ibelux 40mm f0.85 super fast mirrorless lens

We reported on this lens a while back when pictures of a prototype were floating around the internet. But now the lens has officially been anounced. The Ibelux 40mm f0.85 is the fastest current production lens for mirrorless cameras (though not the fastest lens in the world, as the press release boldly claims) and was jointly developed by German IB/E Optics and Chinese Shanghai Transvision. The lens sports 10 elements in 8 groups, weights 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs) and will be made available for Sony NEX, Fuji X, Canon M and Micro Four Thirds cameras. It will come with an MSRP of US-$ 2,080.

In the press release, the company also announces full-frame lenses for Sony’s A7 and A7R cameras. Currently, Handevision is working on a high-speed telephoto APO mirror lens, a tilt-shift lens and a compact fixed focal length lens, among others. We reckon that these will be designed and manufactured to meet the same high standards as the Ibelux 40mm f0.85. The full press release including MFT charts and sample images can be foud here.
