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

Hi all,

I'm thinking ahead to A7 or A7r with a fast 'normal' prime.

I generally prefer to manually focus. And the FE 55 does look like it's going to be a great lens.

But I'm wondering if I should still skip the FE 55, and abandon the option to use autofocus -- and instead go for a physically focused lens, rather than always have to use focus-by-wire.

Anybody wrestling with a similar decision?

unfortunatley, until someone reviews that aspect it will be difficult to tell

I wouldn't assume its bad, for example the Fuji X100s had better MF then the X100 after customer feedback

I can also say my RX1R is actually very good for manual focus, so perhaps the A7 will be good as well
