IDK but isn't Shoten just a (Japanese) producer of adapters? And why would they announce products from 2 different Chinese manufacturers?

Speedmaster is a sub-brand from manufacturer Zhong Yi. And 7Artisans is another Chinese manufacturer. I'm confused...

Otherwise really looking forward to this lens.
Last year in march, Mitakon already announced a 50mm 0.95 lens for EF, but it turned out to be vaporware.

Shoten are a Japanese importer and distributor. Their portfolio includes the Zhong Yi Mitakon and 7Artisans lenses as well as the Techart and K&F concept adapters.

It's Shoten that showcased the prototype Zhong Yi Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/.095 in Canon EF mount last year at CP+2018, see for instance and https://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/eventreport/1109858.html.

I assume an MF lens for the RF mount.
I would imagine, at this early stage (in 3rd party manufacturing/reverse engineering) that it would have to be manual focus. I would imagine that all of the lenses this distributor resells are manual focus. (But I do not know with certainty.)
