On my A7ii it's faster, but perhaps just because the Sony 1.8 is so damned slow.

Agreed. The FE 50 was terribly slow on my A7Rii. The Sammy 35 is vastly faster. I have no problem capturing skiers and mountain bikers with it. I’ve had no complaints about AF at all with this lens!

Fall in Vermont with the little Sammy. Love this lens for hiking! Thinking about swapping it for the new Sammy 35 1.8 - but mostly just for the weather sealing and a little for the faster aperture. Considering that I’ve used the 2.8 in snow and fog, etc. with no issues, and gotten nighttime shots I like just fine, though, that may just be GAS. And, though the new 1.8 is wee, it’s not so wee as the 2.8 - and size matters....
