Kipon: “IBELUX 40mmF0.85 Performs Better on Fujifilm than Sony, We Don’t know Why” Kipon 40mmF0.85 Reviews

Kipon Ibelux 40mm F0.85

Kai was at the Kipon booth at photokina, and noticed the pink Ibelux 40mm F0.85 MK II, which was announced back in September 2017.

You can check out Kai’s hands on video here, but I’d like to highlight on curious sentence the Kipon manager said, while Kai was trying to figure out if he’d like to test the Sony APS-C or the Fujifilm APS-C version of the lens. Kipon says:

The performance of Ibelux 40mm F0.85 is better on Fujifilm cameras than on Sony, we don’t know why.”

Kai’s impressions when shot at F0.85 on the Fujifilm X-T3:

  • lot’s of color fringing
  • soft
  • nice smooth bokeh

You can find another Kipon IBELUX 40mm F0.85 review at alikgriffin here (with lots of sample images). His Pros and Cons:

  • Pros: Extremely shallow DOF, very creamy puffy bokeh, nice corner and edge performance when stopped down, sharp in the center, great bokeh at all apertures.
  • Cons: CA wide open, tendency for highlights to bloom wide open, vignetting at f0.85-f1, big, heavy.
