First off you got me in trouble from my wife, because I had to explain why I was looking at photos of a beautiful woman in a Bikini. Secondly put the darn camera down and join her in the pool. LOL.  As has been stated, with out the ability to detect contrast your 35 1.4 will always be slow.  It would seem that a faster lens would do better in the dark given that its ability to detect contrast would be greater in low light.  Even DSLR's that use phase detection usually focus better with faster lenses, subject of course to the kind of motor and differing electronics and such.
