A 40mm f/0.85 for Your EOS-M?
« on: December 14, 2013, 08:15:17 AM »

HANDEVISION  —  December 12, 2013

A mutual passion for photography and the art of image capture between two companies’ owner has led two special firms, Shanghai Transvision and German IB/E Optics, to collaborate on an industry-shaking new innovation. By merging Geman high-quality engineering standards with Chinese cost-effective production infrastructure, the new camera lens brand Handevision (“Han” means China in Mandarin and “De” is the word for Germany).


After many months of collaboration between engineering and production teams, final quality control assessments have concluded and the IBELUX 40mm f0.85 high-speed lens, the fastest lens in the world, is nearly ready for release. Available for sale by February, 2014, this lens will be available for Sony NEX, Fuji X, Canon EOS M and Micro 4/3 digital mirrorless camera mounts (MSRP is $2,080 USD).


While risky to start our launch with this ground-breaking high-speed lens, we hope to gain the attention and confidence of photographers around the world with our expanding new lenses. Our mission is to manufacture high-grade lenses of metallic construction with a clean, aesthetic finish. As a new player in the lens market, we believe we can expand our new brand internationally as our engineers, uninhibited by production costs nor by material restrictions, will be free to work creatively in seeking optimal image quality and artistic design.


We are currently working on our next project, the wide-angle IBEGON lens. With Sony releasing the new full-frame mirrorless A7/A7R camera, we have designed a high-speed telephoto APO mirror lens called the IBECAT, named for its sharp image capture, its lightweight construction and fast glass. Additional lenses are in development for full frame mirrorless cameras, including a tilt-shift lens and a compact fixed focal length lens.


We are focusing our efforts at expanding our line of full-frame mirrorless and DSLR detachable lenses in 2014 and are constantly developing ways to satisfy demand of professional photographers for faster, sharper lenses.

Wouldn't an EOS-M camera fit inside a f/0.85 aperture lens?

"IBELUX 40mm f0.85 high-speed lens, the fastest lens in the world"

Well, maybe the fastest lens available at present, but not the fastest lens ever. If I remember well (from a photography course by Lex Werkheim in the sixties) the fastest lens at the time was a 0.75 (Zeiss?) lens used for photographing Röntgen (X-ray) screens. As Röntgen screens are flat, depth of field is not so important. Moreover, IQ is rather low anyway.
If you know of any other extremely fast lenses, please share it with us.
Kind regards,
Rob.

Wow.  The concept is cool, but how many people in the world are going to buy a two thousand dollar lens to mount on >$300 camera?

There are many fast lenses made in small quantities in the past, so give them credit for the fastest production lens you can actually buy and use today.

At a practical level, you get near enough the same performance at lower cost with a 55mm f/1.2 lens and metabones speed booster, although I don't believe they make an EOS M speedbooster yet.

The concept is very interesting for MFT where it becomes a very fast 80 mm equivalent with shallow DOF. The price, however, is another matter...

I did think of that, but we aren't exactly talking about the same market.  I personally will never pay big bucks for a lens that can only be used on the M.  I would prefer to spend that money on an EF lens that I could then adapt to the M if desired.

Could it be they know something about the future M that we don't know about?  ???

Very interesting concept, questionable engineering if you think that it weighs 1.2 Kg  :o

IBECAT will work well with IBEDOG?

IBEGON? Already am.
