One lens tester a while back called the recent surge in really cheap Chinese MF lenses for Sony FE (and Leica M, etc) "vending machine lenses" ~ you never quite know what you get. Well, the Kipon (formerly Handevision) Iberit lenses are now "selling" at steep discounts (my Iberit 75 was $299) and is supposed to be the best of the Iberits (24-35-50-75 and 90). So I thought, it's a lot smaller and lighter than my Voigtlander 110 and I can use it in bad weather (it's a "disposable" lens in that sense), so here goes. Not too shabby. I set WB using Expodisc and a Datacolor calibration for my body. Infinity focus seems OK, so I think it's a keeper. I used the LR lens correction for a Leica Summarit 75/f2.4 because these Iberits are supposed to be blatant copies of the Summarits.
