I too don't understand how come the new 35mm doesn't support the highly advertised on sensor PDAF system of the Nex 5n /6. Some old lenses have updated to support it and not the brand new one? I compared the speed of AF between the kit lens and the 35mm, and as expected, in low light conditions, the 16-50 focuses noticeably faster. I hope Sony won't forget to update this lens in the near future. It makes the new PDAF feature quite a missed opportunity for now.
