BRIGHTIN STAR AF 50mm F/1.4

2023 will be the year when lens manufacturers who were focusing on manual focus lenses start to experiment with autofocus lenses. (pun 100% intended). We saw it recently with Sirui’s Sniper lineup, and according to Photo Rumors we’re seeing another manual lens company going AF – the Brightin Star 50mm F/1.4.
