Handevision 40mm f/0.85 Overview

This HandeVision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 Lens is specifically designed for Sony E mount APS-C-format mirrorless digital cameras, where it provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 60mm. This manual focus prime lens is characterized by its exceptionally fast f/0.85 maximum aperture, which enables its use in a wide array of lighting conditions as well as provides extensive control over focus placement. The optical construction is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups, including a concave front element that helps to reduce chromatic aberrations and maintains a central angle of incidence of 2.6° for sharp imaging and minimal distortion throughout the aperture range.

The physical construction of the lens is set in an all-metal lens barrel, in which anodized aluminum alloy, brass, and stainless steel are used. The manual focus ring rotates 250° to enable precise focus setting to distances as close as 2.5'. Additionally, a 10-blade diaphragm works to produce a circular aperture that contributes to an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Prime 40mm lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 60mm when used on APS-C image sensors.
A fast, bright f/0.85 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions as well as for controlling depth of field.
Front concave lens element and sophisticated optical design helps to minimize chromatic aberrations and achieve notable sharpness.
Manual focusing ring has a 250° focus throw, which enables precise positioning and critical refinement over focus placement.
All-metal lens barrel incorporates a built-in lens hood to both protect the front lens element and reduce lens flare and ghosting.
Ten-blade circular diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is pairs well with the fast maximum aperture.

it's magic

I bought it while it was on sale. Thanks to B&H for lightening fast shipment. A+ for build quality. Out of the world bokeh. It's amazing in separating out what's in focus from what's not (3D feel). Used it on both my Eos M and Eos M3. My Eos M has magic lantern installed in it so I could use focus peaking. With Eos M3 it has focus peaking built into it by default. On both bodies I have had tremendous results. It's one of a kind lens, ultra fast prime. It's simply amazing for low light videos. Despite being a manual lens with no IS photos come out razor sharp at center even when shot wide open. I truly wish canon comes up with ef-m mount full frame miorrless body so that true power of this ultra fast lens can be utilized. Two thumbs up to Handevision for breakthrough innovation! Definitely a keeper for me.

Asked by: Abdulghani A.
While you can use the Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 Lens for Sony E Mount on the a7R II, the lens is not a full frame lens. So, when using the lens, you would need to shoot in the APS-C size sensor mode.
