$500 Savings On Handevision Ibelux F/0.85 Lens | Deal Alert

By Anthony Thurston on December 18th 2014

Have you been eyeing the Handevision Ibelux F/0.85 lens from afar? Lusting after its creamy bokeh, or extreme low light performance? Well, today is the day to get that lens, as B&H is currently offering an incredible $500 instant savings!


I shared my thoughts on the Handevision F/0.85 lens on the EOS-M a while back, and my impressions were that for the price and MF abilities of the M, the lens did not make sense for most people. However, if you shoot on another system, like I now do on my Fuji X-T1, which has better MF capabilities than the M, this could be a killer portrait lens with a unique look.

For ~$2,000 though, it’s still a bit of a stretch for most. But after $500 instant savings and a final price of $1,399, while still on the expensive side, this could be a lens that takes your portrait kit to a whole new level.


If you are interested in the deal, you can find the Handevision Ibelux F/0.85 on B&H in EF-M, Fuji X, M43, and Sony E-Mounts here. This deal is only available for a limited time, so jump on it while you can.

    What do people use lenses like this for? That’s a crazy aperture to be using.

    f/0.85, just insane aperture, nothing like it out there either other than the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 and that’s a pill the size of a baby elephant at $10,745 and the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 @ $900. I’m guessing it’s about the right price now.

    Even with the $500 discount – still too rich for my blood – but the aperture range looks impressive!
