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

Manually focusing on the E lenses on the NEX is a real pain, they keep spinning forever. It should probably be the same with EF lenses.
Ever considered using DMF? You can auto focus and then fine tune if needed.

+1 on DMF. It's the perfect solution when you want to fine tune focus and make certain that the focus spot you picked is where you think it is. Just hit AF like normal and then give the lens a slight turn and the EVF or LCD will zoom into the focus spot you've selected.

Having shot with the FE 55 for a week, I can tell you that it's a spectacular lens and perfectly matched to the A7/A7R.
