The Samyang 2.8/12 is a manual lens and its focus is set with a big, comfortable ring with a useful depth of field scale; if only it had no slack.

In case of such extreme parameters the depth of field is so large that you won’t miss the autofocus almost at all. Even at the maximum relative aperture you still can set the focus at less than 2 meters and enjoy a sharp image from less than 1 meter to infinity.
