Canon EF 40mm Canon Rf Lens Rumor

Is 40mm lens the best choice for you? Kai W thinks it is, and in his 11 minuted video he presents 5 reasons to underline it.

The 40mm lens in the video is one of Canon’s inexpensive gems, the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM (canon rumors). The EF 40mm f/2.8 is an amazingly sharp pancake lens.

The Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 lens is the world’s fastest lens for mirrorless cameras, and it got another, huge price drop and is now on sale at $799 at B&H Photo.

I am not sure if this is a B&H exclusive or if the price drop applies universally. On Amazon all mount types but Canon EOS M are discounted.

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

IBELUX 40mm F/0.85

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
