The Handevision 75mm f2.4 lens is a small lightweight manual lens designed for mirrorless camera systems including the Leica. The lens features 5 elements in 5 groups for incredible contrast and color rendering and a 6 blade rounded aperture for butter smooth bokeh at f2.4. You might be wondering, who is Handevision? are Handevision lenses good? Is this Handevision IBERIT 75mm worth it?
Today I want to talk a little about this hidden little gem of a lens, the Handevision 75mm f2.4. Full review coming soon, but since those take forever to build, compile and process, I wanted to share a little bit about why this lens is unique and why it's totally worth it. So the big question, since there are so many lenses out there for both Sony and Fujifilm, what's the point of these Handevision lenses? What makes them special? Especially this 75mm f2.4?
Handevision is a joint venture between German lens manufacturer IB/E Optics GmbH and the Chinese Shanghai Transvision Photographic Equipment Co who produces high-end adapters under the trademark Kipon. Today Handevision is making some interesting full frame manual lenses for mirrorless and Leica cameras, including the fastest lens ever made the 40mm f0.85 (a gimmick . . . yes), but are these lenses any good? Here is a quick overview from a few weeks of using several of their lenses.
