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

Zeiss announced they will be releasing a set of manual focus lenses for FF FE-mount next year. Who knows, they may release a 50mm lens with a more up-to-date result that rivals the FE 55.

But I kind of wonder -- isn't E/FE mount kind of disadvantageous in that case? That you can *only* mount it to an E/FE body -- as opposed to a lens that requires an adapter, and so can be used on several competing systems.

That's really up to you. But if you do use an adapter, make sure you get a very good, precision made adapter to get exact infinity focus and an even focus plane. Lots of adapters are two short and imprecise.
