In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the HandeVision IBELUX 40mm f0.85, gifts for donating to the Luminous Endowment for Photographers, a Labor Day BorrowLenses extention and Leica Store San Francisco.

  • Roger Cicala tests the HandeVision IBELUX 40mm f0.85. Yep, f0.85, with a depth of field of "about the width of an 1.5mm screw" at its minimum focusing distance (3 feet)."I can't tell you that it's worth $2,000 to you," he writes, "but I can certainly say it's not overpriced for what it offers. This is an excellent lens."
  • Michael Reichmann's Luminous Endowment for Photographers is now offering thank you gifts of his work for donations. In fact, it's the only way to get a copy of Michael Reichmann -- a 20 Year Photography Retrospective. Meanwhile, grant applications feature some inspired ideas.
  • BorrowLenses will let you keep your rental until Sept. 2 if it runs into the Labor Day Weekend.
  • Today is the grand opening of the Leica Store San Francisco but the party continues all weekend. About a block away from the now-closed Lomography Gallery Store.

More to come...
