E-mount ultra wide zoom could potentially be Sonnar (A-mount version is) but could be Tessar. A 24mm FE prime could be Sonnar (basically a slightly enhanced version of the E 24) as opposed to Distagon (A-mount version).

All ZA lenses have been AF though (whether Sony-Zeiss or Zeiss Touit) so MF will be a departure.

Most people who would buy the wide angle lenses such as the 15mm, 18mm and 21mm are likely to use manual focus most of the time. The same would go with the 100mm macro lens.

At the very least with decent live view and focus peaking it make it easier than using the current Canon or Nikon mount lenses. And those users seem to be quite happy with manual focus.

My eyes aren't what they used to be and so auto focus would be nice but hardly essential.
