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.
