Sirui hasn't been in the camera lens game for long but they are ramping up production and creating some fantastic and affordable options for stills and video. 

Sirui started as a manufacturer of tripods and camera peripherals, before deciding to reestablish itself in 2014 as a third-party lens manufacturer. The last 10 years have seen a dramatic change in quality for Chinese lens manufacturers, with the advancement of lens technology, Sirui now produces some of the best affordable lenses and cine lenses on the market and a recent video shows us how they do it.
