If I prefer to manually focus, should I still get the FE 55?

I'm in a similar situation. I own quite a few FD, MD and M42 lenses that I use with my original NEX-5. However I do have a good few E-Mount lenses too. I'm tempted by both the A7 and A7R.

Again I don't need either and am happy with my current setup I am tempted by the lure of full frame as I do shoot quite a lot indoor and in low light. (Already have a FD lens turbo that helps in this regard) however it'd be fantastic to use my dad's old Rokkor 58mm F1.2 without crop!
The A7R would be better in this sense right?
