LAEA2 + SAL35f18

There are many posts on this forum that raves about this combination. I have to agree that this is a very good combination, that is why I got it. The PDAF is much faster than CDAF, but is the difference worth the price and the added bulk (it feels a little bigger/bulkier but the weight was not an issue)? My answer is no, and that's why I returned it and paid the 15% restocking fee. PDAF feels 100% to 200% faster than CDAF. It sounds like a lot but the real life practical difference is maybe 0.5 seconds to a second - and that's for indoor night-time shooting in low light. I didn't see a material difference in outdoor daylight conditions. I never really had any trouble focusing with native NEX lenses in low light to begin with so I don't feel like this combination changes the game enough for me. I'll learn to be patient and wait for the SEL50F18 to ship.
