Samyang AF 12mm f/2 Fujifilm

Hi There. I consider replacing my manual version with this new af one. Got some questions regarding focusing though which one of you which already own this lens might be able to answer:

focus to infinity was pretty easy on the older manual version due to infinity mark (or the evaluated position near it) and the relatively stiff focus ring which prevented accidential focus shift. i wonder how hard is it with this new lens to focus to infinity at night. I normally would autofocus on a distant lit object (star, tree, mountain) and then switch to manual mode to set focus on infinity - question is, how does it "hold" this focus position when moving the lens around (of course without touching the manual focus ring or heavily shaking) - is it prone to "loose" infinity or does it hold focus well? Would have liked to see a focus lock button on this one...

Thank you, Martin
