Seriously Fast Mirrorless Lens Savings {Deal Dash}

By Anthony Thurston on February 21st 2016

Welcome to our Deal Dash segment, where we scour the web for the best deals on camera, lenses, lighting, and other gear for photographers. There are always great deals to be found over on B&H and Amazon, so make sure to check out those two websites. Today, we wanted to highlight three deals below:

Fuji XF 56mm F/1.2 – $200 Off

FUJINON_XF_56mm_F1.2

Without a doubt, Fuji produces some of the best glass available in the mirrorless world, and their 56mm F/1.2 is likely one of their best. Offering a ~85mm field of view and a fast F/1.2 aperture, this lens has a special place in a portrait shooter’s heart.

If you shoot Fuji already and don’t have one yet, or you are maybe looking to grab one of those new X-Pro2 bodies, then this is a lens you will want in your kit. Lucky for you, it’s also $200 off right now! Interested? B&H can hook you up here.

Handevision IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 – $1,100 Off

This lens had been troubled by two issues, an extremely high price and middling performance wide open. But now, thanks to a pretty major price cut, this lens is now coming back to reality and could be a valid option for some of you.

Considering the $1,100 price slash, if you have been thinking this lens was something you could be interested in, head on over to B&H now and grab one.

SLR Magic 50mm F/0.95 – $300 Off

Another super fast prime lens that has suffered from an incredibly high price point, the SLR Magic 50mm F/0.95 has also come down a bit in price, making it a much more attractive option.

If you are interested, you can grab one over on B&H today for a cool $300 in savings.

    Anyone who paid $1900 for that Handevision lens is feeling pretty sick right now.

    Just shot my first wedding using all Fuji gear and the 56mm 1.2 was my favorite lens to use. Definitely a must have lens in the Fuji world.
