Emount lenses are useless if the autofocus stops working?

Hi all,

I'm currently thinking of investing on an emount lens for my kit. Specifically the 35 1.4 Sony Distagon. I am thinking long-term use of this lens. So the thought of "focus by wire" popped into my head when it was time to take money out of my wallet:)

Are focus by wire lenses able to manual focus if the autofocus dies?

If not, how easy/hard is it to fix such a lens?

Thank you
