You remember the time when we were excited about all these new f/0.95 lenses? Now we have five of them (3 Nokton and 2 SLR magic). It’s time to set new frontiers, we want it all and we want it faster! Guess what? It’x coming…the IBELUX 40mm f/0.85! This lens has been co developed by the Japanese company Kenko and the German IBE. The lens will be priced at around 1,000 Euro or Dollars and hit the stores in July. It’s a long time til July and you may save this Slidoo search to get notified when it will be available on eBay.
There is yet no image samples or specific info about the lens design. I wouldn’t expect a stellar performance wide open. And good luck when trying to focus on the right spot!

Nokton 25mm f/0.95 ([shoplink 36580 ebay]here one Bay[/shoplink]).
