Since that review seemed fairly carefully done and comprehensive, it looks like you're just having difficulty believing it.  I own the Rok (only) and don't find it surprising.  It is very sharp, very good IQ and overall a lovely, compact, high quality lens.

I would say it comes down to MF vs price, maybe f stop but less likely that for most people.  While dof is huge at this focal length, that does not equal being able to ignore the need to think about focus.  If I could have it AF for free I would take it, but the MF is not challenging the way it can be for a long lens. The images are great.
