If you’re into ultra-fast, unordinary lenses, Kipon has something that might have you interested. The company has just announced IBELUX 40mm/f0.85 Mark III, the third generation of its fast prime lens for APS-C cameras. You can get it in seven different mounts, and Kipon also promises some improvements over the old models. So, let’s see what you can expect.
It’s unlikely that Sony shooters are going to go out and buy Mamiya 645 lenses, but it’s not outside of the realm of possibility for Mamiya 645 shooters to pick up a Sony for when they want to carry something a little lighter. Occasionally, though, they may want to use their 645 lenses on that little Sony body, so Kipon has answered the call.
They’ve announced two new adapters which offer full electronic aperture control via your Sony body. The M645-S/E E adapter is for Mamiya brand 645 lenses and M645-S/E ES adapter is for Phase One/Schneider brand 645 lenses to let you mount them to Sony E mount bodies.
If you want to use a Canon EF lens on a Nikon Z camera, with autofocus – it’s about to become possible. Kipon has announced the world’s first Canon-to-Nikon adapter that lets you use EF-mount lenses with Nikon Z cameras without losing the autofocus function.
Chinese lens adapter manufacturer Kipon has officially released a new Canon EF to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter with a neat little feature up its sleeve.
