Question about those Viltrox primes
1

I can not find the answer anywhere so I have to ask.
The company offers a series a low cost primes with AF. One nice feature with those primes is the aperture ring. But is the aperture ring real (mechanical) or just a glorified function dial that just happens to control aperture electronically, like you would from a camera body?

I know the company also offers MF primes, I'm pretty sure the aperture ring is mechanical. But I have my doubts with AF lenses, I've seen AF lenses with aperture rings from other manufacturers and it's all electronic with them. I fear the same with Viltrox.
