but the maximum aperture does not make this the best lens for street photography

I do 80-90% of my photography is what is commonly known as street photography. All of it is done with MF lenses. If I may generalize; beautiful photos are created using large apertures, photos with substance are made using small apertures and often time zone focusing which does away with the need of both fast lenses and AF.

If I had a Leica, manual focusing would be much easier. It's a breeze on my Canon Canonet QL 17 GIII, but it's considerably more challenging on a DSLR.
