Sirui is probably best known for its tripods, but the Chinese accessory specialists will now be producing lenses. Shown at the IBC 2019 trade show in Amsterdam, the first two primes are an 85mm f/1.4 and a 50mm f/1.8 anamorphic lens.

The Sirui 85mm f/1.4 ASPH lens is designed exclusively for the E-mount range of Sony mirrorless cameras. The manual focus lens will go on sale in January and is expected to retail for $400.
