The Samyung 12 f2 is highly regarded and when you get that wide auto focus isn’t all that necessary.

Yup, most certainly.  And you have the side benefit of having arguably the best astro lens available if that happens to also be of interest.  I own the Zeiss 12, which does have AF and is relatively similar in quality, but a whole lot more expensive.  The Samyang/Rokinon wasn’t around when I moved to Fuji or else it would be an integral part of my kit.
