D780 manual focus lenses

Does anyone use manual focus lenses with their D780? I’m intending to buy either the Irix 15mm f2.4 Firefly lens or a Samyang 14mm f2.8 MF Mk2. It’s one or the other given their price and relative ease of use so I’m sorry if you suggest anything else as I wouldn’t be interested.

Will use them on a tripod for landscape and interiors, mostly churches.

The Irix has the necessary electrical contacts for camera aperture control so is my preferred choice and has been favourably compared in some reviews to the venerable Zeiss lens with a similar focal length.

I wondered if anyone can tell me if I will get focus peaking with MF on the D780? A real bonus would be if any of you have either of the lenses that I’ve mentioned and if so what your experience is of using them.

Thanks to everyone who might have time to reply 🤗
