Manual focus is one thing, but manual aperture is a bridge too far for me these days.

The Pentax version should have A contacts for auto-aperture - a feature that is on all Samyang lenses for Pentax, AFAIK, and distinguishes them from the versions for (most) other mounts.

Manual aperture is still the next best thing after sliced bread. This way one can be sure that manual focus can be done at optimal aperture (wide open that is).
