Considering you can pick a great manual 50mm 1.4 for $150 or less on eBay, it's kind of a no-brainer purchase, unless you're shelling out for the Sony 50mm 1.4 AF.

To use an f/1.4 lens at an aperture wider than f/3.5, it is typically necessary to use Movie Mode: Manual. So you probably have a good point in saving some money by not buying a lens that supports autofocus.

Unless the sun comes out, and then you may regret the lack of autofocus that causes you to change back to the kit lens and/or pull out your Sony 35mm or 50mm 1.8 DT crop lens.
