than their AF counterparts. So you don't even need AF period.

Especially since all of the E-mount AF glass are focus-by-wire and many are not very linear with weird focus throws making them difficult to manually focus.

all MF and all excel at landscape and are probably the sharpest and most well-corrected lens (CA, distortion, etc) in native E-mount. And all are a joy to MF and use in general. Best part is that although these lenses are MF-only, they all have full electronic connection to Sony bodies, meaning exif data are recorded and even turning the focus ring actually triggers focus magnification on the viewfinder making focusing a breeze even without using focus peeking, assuming you have the feature turned on in the camera.
