IBelux 40mm f/0.85 lens for X mount coming this summer for $1,000.

Share

The Chinese-German partnership between Kipon and IBE Optics produced the fastest lens of any digital mirrorless system, the Ibelux 40mm f/0.85. This lens will be sold this summer for around $1,000. It will be available for all current digital mirrorless cameras and that includes of course the X-mount. Don’t know if a lens fast as this is really needed. I don’t expect a great image quality at full aperture. You will have to stop down to get a decent image. The 35mm f/1.4 Fuji lens is certainly the better deal. The German IBE is also known for their video lenses and that is likely the goal of this lens, to be a fast video lens.

XF18-55mm photozone review

photozone published his technical review of the XF18-55 zoom lens (read it here).

The Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS may be the hottest reason to enter the Fuji system. It is amazingly sharp throughout the zoom and relevant aperture range. The amount of lateral CAs is generally quite low with the exception of 55mm @ f/4. The Fujinon is not without flaws, of course. Technically it suffers from a high barrel distortion at 18mm and the vignetting is a bit too high at max. aperture. However, these aspects are taken care of either by the camera itself or external RAW converters so you don’t need to worry from a user perspective. The quality of the bokeh (out-of-focus) blur is pretty good for a standard zoom lens but it cannot rival the best prime lenses, of courseIn a nutshell – you can’t go wrong with the Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS

This was just a part of photozone’s verdict about the 18-55 zoom lens. Click here to read the whole review.
