Use the "cheap" Rokinon 85mm lens as MF practice?

I almost bought the Rokinon 85/1.4 for my D800E for its amazing bokeh until I lost confidence in my manual focusing capability even with the DK-17M. Still, I wonder if the 85mm would have been a good MF practice lens.

But at least the Rokinon would "only" be a $300 "inconvenience" instead of a $2000 "disaster" if I purchased the Zeiss ZF 100 but consistently fail to learn MF.

Thanks for the reminder for DK-17M btw.
