35mm f2.4 for Leica

I saw this today on another site...
Review: The Handevision Iberit 35mm F2.4 is a budget option for Leica users: Digital Photography Review

Itís a review of the Handevision 35mm f2.4 for Leica M mount.

Of course, the first thing I thought was that Pentax has licensed out everyoneís favorite plastic fantastic 35mm lens...

I have no idea if thatís anything real at all, but itís interesting if it is...

I wonder if Handevisionís next lens will be a 50mm f1.8

🙂

We're talking Leica here.

The OEM 35/2.4 is $2K.

Well, the first thing you should have thought of is the Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35/2.4, which has been around since at least the 1970s (I'm not entirely sure when CZJ switched from 35/2.8 to 35/2.4). In optical design, the IBERIT is closer to the Flek - 6 elements in 6 groups - than either the Pentax (6 in 5) or Leica (6 in 4). If, as they claim, their optics are designed in Germany, I'd think they would look for inspiration at home, rather than Japan.

Handevision's IBERIT lenses are all f/2.4, which mimics Leica's Summarit-M lenses, also all f/2.4 (IBERIT: 24/35/50/75/90mm, Summarit-M: 35/50/75/90mm).

That makes a lot more sense, even if it isnít as much fun 😜
