Manual third party L mount lenses

I just got a Kipon Iberit 75mm F2.4 manual lens in L mount.  I see there are a few other brands available and I wonder if any users on this forum have and use any of these completely manual lenses in native L mount, and what you think of them.

The big deal for me is to be able to focus while the lens is set to the shooting aperture, and I can do it easily with a manual lens.  And, I don't like fiddling with adapters.

Here is a short list of manual third party L Mount lens manufacturers from the B&H website:




Meyer-Optic Gorlitz


Venus Optics (Laowa)

If you know of others, please list them.

I understand that many manual lenses can be used on L mount with suitable adapters, but I would like to hear from users who have and use manual L mount lenses (no adapter).
