Why do you still need manual-only lens?

Digital Cameras & Equipment - www.cambridgeincolour.com
In this 21st century, especially for the last 10 years, many of our gadgets have become very reliable with their automation. Their usage has become easier and safe many of our time.

So, my question is, why there are still lens manufacturers who produce new manual-only lenses (manual AF and manual aperture) for modern camera body? And why do some photographers still want to buy it? Why don't they just use lenses that can switch between AF and MF which are more flexible depending on the condition? Doesn't it mean that many of the modern function in the camera body will become useless?

Example of manual-only lenses: VOIGTLANDER NOKTON 25MM f/0.95 TYPE I & TYPE II
