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

Two things worth keeping in mind about Ron's tests:

1) He used an A7, and it's possible the A7r may perform differently (we know from Huff that A7r seems more prone to color cast, but it could also be less prone to smearing).

2) He used an adapter that lets him focus past infinity -- and at least some people think that some lenses might be adversely impacted by that,

Still too early to write off a class of lens because of a few tests, the NEX-7 was useless for many people early on, RF WA's were all but written off, but as more people got it in there hands and could see the quality first hand and post their results did it sway those early opinions.

I fully expect to see something similar with the A7(r).
