It's official! The world's fastest mirrorless camera lens is going to be shipping worldwide in the very near future. With a 40mm focal length perfect for many situations, the lens is topped with a maximum aperture of f/0.85. The prime lens is now in stock based on their press release. Looks like the Voiglander 17mm f/0.95 has some competition now!
If you are in love with super shallow depth of field, this is the route you may want to start going down. "Mirrorless cameras with a sensor smaller than full-frame have a larger depth of field even if they are used with lenses set to the same aperture as their full-fram equivalents" (The Phoblographer). This explains why ou see a lot of creamy bokeh on cameras such as the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 that everyone goes crazy about. Personally, I am a huge fan of nice bokeh and depth of field and would love to get my hands on this product
For approximately $2,443 you can get your hands on this Handevision 40mm f/0.85 lens which are available on a few German eBay shops. I did a bit of "googling" and did not find anything besides that as of now but will update the post if anything comes up in the near future. The Lens will have a variety of mounts for Fujifilm X cameras, Canon EOS-M's, Sony E mounts, and even Micro Four Third cameras from both Olympus and Panasonic, according to The Phoblographer.
What do you think of this new lens? Any plans of trying to get one for yourself?
