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

sticking with one "smart" adapter might make sense - I didn't have that option when I started, and now have too many older legacy lenses that I like. I did consider picking up the Metabones for Canon along with one of there stabilized longer zooms (70-200), but am glad I waited since I think I will prefer the native 70-200G.

Thanks again!

If one were to orient the decision toward picking a smart adapter -- and without already owning corresponding lenses -- is there a "best" adapter/system to focus on?

(I didn't even realize there were smart adapters for systems other than Canon!)

I assume it's mostly for the benefit of EXIF? Is there such a thing as a manual focus lens with stabilization?
