Exactly. No, it's not "pretty darn fast," as the 35 f1.4 I'm comparing it to is not a fast AF lens. But it's fast enough. It clears the hurdle of "annoyingly slow?" nicely, but it doesn't vault into "surprisingly quick" territory.It’s fast enough for event work. Even faster on the newer bodies, X-T2/3, X-Pro2, X-T20, E-E3.
