Now available at B&H, Kipon’s Iberit and Ibelux series of lenses comprise a versatile range of prime focal lengths for mirrorless and rangefinder cameras. Spanning wide angle to short telephoto, these manual focus lenses prioritize consistency, have classic appeal, and sport solid, all-metal designs.
In the Iberit range, which is available in FUJIFILM X, Sony E, and Leica M mounts, the widest lens is a 24mm f/2.4, which is especially suitable for landscape and interior use. Traditional 35mm f/2.4 and 50mm f/2.4 focal lengths are available to fill those classic spots in every photographer’s bag. And at the long end, there is the portrait-length 75mm f/2.4 and short-telephoto 90mm f/2.4. These five lenses share a similar form factor, with a consistent 49mm filter thread and 58mm exterior diameter, and each of the lenses has engraved focus distance and depth of field scales on the lens barrel for easier focusing adjustment.
Straying from the consistency and humble nature of the Iberit range, Kipon also has the unique and exceedingly fast Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 lens, which is available for APS-C-format Sony E, FUJIFILM X, and Micro Four Thirds mounts. This lens is obviously distinguished by its impressive f/0.85 maximum aperture, which yields excellent control over depth of field, as well as low-light performance. This manual focus lens also sports an all-metal design, has an integrated lens hood, and features a 10-blade diaphragm to produce a pleasing bokeh quality.
