Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85, world’s fastest lens for EOS M now selling at $1,199 ($700 off)

Handevision IBELUX 40mm F/0.85, World’s Fastest Lens For EOS M Now Selling At $1,199 ($700 Off)

The Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 is the world’s fastest lens for your EOS M3 (and other mirrorless cameras), and it got another price drop, selling at $1,199 (B&H Photo | Amazon) after a $700 price drop from the regular price. Still not a budget lens but consider it goes f/0.85. On the EOS M3’s APS-C sensor the IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 becomes a 64mm. And it weighs as much as the Zeiss Otus 85mm.

LensRentals felt the pulse of the Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 and found that it outperforms the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L in the center. Below is a short video-review of the IBELUX by Matt Granger (not on an EOS M). Canon Watch’s EOS M3 review is here.

  • Canon EF-M Mount/APS-C Format
  • 64mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/0.85 to f/22
  • Concave Front Lens Element
  • 250° Manual Focus Throw
  • Ten-Blade Circular Diaphragm
  • Metal Lens Barrel & Integrated Lens Hood
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 2.5′
  • Filter Thread: 67mm

Lots of Canon announcements coming in October (new EF-M lenses, PowerShot G16 & S120 replacements, more)? [CW4]

Lots Of Canon Announcements Coming In October (new EF-M Lenses, PowerShot G16 & S120 Replacements, More)? [CW4]

It appears October is the month when we will see some new Canon gear. What can we expect?

An ImagePROGRAF Pro-1000 17″ printer, anticipated by Canon’s Masaya Maeda in a recent interview. Most probably we will also see the PowerShot G16 and PowerShot S120 replacements. We do not have any specs so far. And it appears, and I am pretty sure about it, that we will eventually see the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens for EOS M system. This lens leaked months ago, and according to information I got it should have a retractable design. It may well be the next kit lens for the EOS M3, which would also explain why we can buy the M3 only with the 18-55mm IS STM lens (in EU). It’s since some time that I have the feeling Canon is clearing stocks of the nowadays dated EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens. The rumor suggests that also another EF-M lens will be announced, it could be a prime. It’s very likely the listed stuff will indeed be announced.

Canon Rumors, where the rumor leaked, speculates that there could be more to get announced: a DSLR announcement (though no major release), which may be the Rebel SL2, a new EF-S lens, and maybe some more EOS M related announcements.

Stay tuned…

The Fujin Mark II lens sucks, and that’s what it’s expected to do (sensor cleaning gadget)

We had this cool gadget on our radar last year. Now a Mark II release is about to hit the shelves.

What is the Fujin Mark II? It’s a pocketable vacuum cleaner you can mount on your Canon DSLR as if it was a lens. The Fujin Mark II features an electric fan and a stator to suck up any dust particle from your sensor. Cool, isn’t it? I never tried one so I can’t say how effective it is, but it looks good to me. Have a look at the video above. The Fujin Mark II will be released at the end of September, and sells at $150, a 5 filters pack sells for $18. It’s also available on eBay
