Dpreview reviews the Handevision Iberit 35mm f/2.4 lens for Leica M-mount

Dpreview posted their review of the Handevision Iberit 35mm f/2.4 lens for Leica M-mount. This is their conclusion:

“In summary, the Handevision Iberit 35mm F2.4 is a good lens, which offers solid performance on the Leica M10. It’s relatively sharp in the middle and at the edges of the frame wide open, but not competitive with modern ILC lenses with even faster apertures like the Nikon full-frame 35mm F1.8G. Modern lens design has moved optics forward, naturally, but the Iberit is still a pleasant surprise for non bokeh-fanatics.”

What we like:

  • Good standard of construction
  • Pre-milled 6-bit coding template
  • Decent central sharpness wide open (becoming excellent across the frame at F5.6-8)
  • Practically no vignetting and CA, minimal distortion at normal subject distances
  • Resistant to flare

What we don’t:

  • Large (for an M-mount 35mm lens): partially blocks M10’s viewfinder
  • Soft off-axis wide open (before sharpening up again towards the edges)
  • Busy bokeh at wide apertures (especially towards the edges of the frame)
  • Distortion at close distances
  • Slight softness at close distances

Handevision Iberit lenses are sold at Adorama and B&H.
