I loooovvveeee my Rokinon 14mm, which is also fully manual focus & aperture. Very rarely for people, though.
I think the newer Canon version may even be auto aperture. I know there's a new Nikon version with a chip in it so it works flawlessly with lower-end cameras that don't support legacy lenses.
Only problem, of course, is focusing accurately on a 1.4 tele through a modern DSLR finder. I shot a set with a friend's Zeiss 100, and he had a magnifying eyepiece that I was able to borrow since we both have D3 variants, and the eyepiece made all the difference in the world. I'm not sure if they're available for Canon or for square-eyepiece Nikons though. (Although the D800 has the same round eyepiece as the D3/4s, I think.)
