I have three manual lenses. Two fisheyes that almost don't need focusing, and the Voigtlander 17.5. I bought the Voight mostly to play with a manual lens. I like it a lot, but don't use it as much as my AF lenses. One thing I do miss with the manuals is aperture setting in the EXIF data, and even lens identification for purposes of searching for images taken with that lens in LightRoom (which I suppose could be inserted upon import).

This is a very valid objection. At one point I had more than a dozen manual lenses. The inability to identify the lens that I had taken a given picture with prompted me to cut down on the number of manual lenses. Down to 3 and that is more than enough.
