Distinguished by speed, the Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 from Kipon is an exceptionally fast prime lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount mirrorless cameras. The impressive f/0.85 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field for isolating focus and it also benefits working in low-light conditions. The ten groups in eight elements optical design incorporates a front concave element, which helps to reduce color fringing and various aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness. The all-metal construction realizes a rugged physical design, and the lens barrel's exterior also incorporates both depth of field and focusing distance scales for more accurate focus control. Additionally, a ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to suit working with shallow depth of field techniques.

is there any other option for full frame E-Mount as fast as this one?
Asked by: Gustavo
There is not at the moment. This lens is also not a full frame lens. It's an APS-C Sony lens. This here would be the fastest FE lens for Sony cameras. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1475646-REG/mitakon_zhongyi_mtk50f095m3fe_speedmaster_50mm_f_0_95_iii.html

Is it possible to use this lens on a Sony A7r4? Should i use it in crop mode? Thanks
Asked by: Mariano
It will work, the camera will likely automatically crop it due it being a crop lens. In case that it doesn't just manually put the camera in APS-C mode

Yes, it'll be able to mount but do keep in mind that it is APS-C format and not full-frame so it'll be in Super 35 format for video.

KIPON Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 Lens. I would like to know whether this lens can mount on Sony Alpha 7 SII?
Asked by: Wilson
For A7SII you would need B&H # KI40F85SNMK2 which is the Sony E-Mount Version of this lens. However this lens covers an APS-C Sensor only, the A7SII need to be in a cropped mode to work with the lens. https://bhpho.to/3209JvA
