Laowa have exploited the territory. There has been a 7.5mm available for several years, and a new 10mm has just been launched. Both are f2.0

And both manual focus. Someone needs to update the list on Wikipedia.

Manual focus is not an issue because of the massive depth of field with lenses this wide, even if you are unfamiliar with using manual lenses.

It's the exact opposite. Due to the long acceptable sharpness range it'll be tough to focus exactly where you want to. Isn't really a problem for far away subjects when using small aperture, but can really hinder the performance when you're closer to the subject and need to use the lens wide open.
