Fastest a cheapest lens ever: Ibelux 40mm f/0.85!

If you think that the Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton Lens for Micro 4/3 mount is fast, the insanely fast Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 lens will knock your socks off! This lens was displayed at the CP+ show in Japan, and will be made by Kipon and the German company IBE Optics for the E-mount, Micro 4/3 mount, M-mount, EOS-M mount, and X-mount. The price should be around 950 to 1200 Euros.

If you haven’t heard of IBE Optics, they make lenses for the medical, cinema, and broadcast sector, and have been. It should be interesting to see how the image quality will be for this Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 prime lens.

Stanley Kubrick would have loved this news. He shot Barry Lyndon on an even faster lens, the Zeiss f/0.7 (Source: Visual-memory). There is also a Leica Leitz for security cameras with f/0.75 (on auction here on eBay). But this lens is designed for the Sony NEX system and hopefully quality will be decent enough!

Check out Kubrick’s work on Barry Lyndon here on the past post.
