Fuji Rokinon 85mm f1.4 vs Fuji 60mm

Has anyone been using the Rokinon 85mm f1.4? I bought one knowing it would be manual focus but I didn't realize that it wouldn't be coupled. I am happy with the focal Length and I am fine with manual focus but I am not sure I am going to be happy in the long run due to having to focus with the aperture wide open then stopping down to shoot. I am considering returning the lens and getting the Fuji 60mm but I wanted to hear others thoughts before I do.

The Fuji 60 is sharp, very sharp. Not the fastest AF of the XF line, but sharp. Did I say sharp? BTW, I am quite able to focus, even with the aperture closed on all of my MF lenses... Unless it's very dark, you don't need to focus wide open then stop down.
