Kipon is releasing an Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 Mark III, having a posted a teaser image on its website. No specs have yet been released, but this could come as exciting news for lots of photographers.

The crop-sensor Kipon Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 Mark II is one of the fastest lenses currently available. It was released in August 2019 and featured an upgraded build quality for improved durability from the Mark I. The 40mm focal length is equivalent to 60mm in full-frame terms when shooting on an APS-C camera (64mm on Canon), while the wide aperture of f/0.85 gives an equivalent depth of field of about f/1.2.
