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

I use MF almost exclusively on my NEX 7.  I keep one AF lens for social reasons -- when you want to hand the camera to someone to take a picture for instance.  Many legacy lenses are good, some outstanding, and I've tried many.  To repeat something I just posted, the sample matters as much, if not more than the brand.  They vary a lot, so be prepared to try more than one.  For me it's Canon FD(n) lenses, but if you are patient you can do well with other lines also.
