Frankly I am amazed Henri Cartier Bresson managed to take any situational photographs at all.

Expectations and standards were very different then.

Many of Cartier Bresson's photographs, wonderful as they were, would not be considered up to the technical standards of today.

What held Bresson back was not the speed of his autofocus (he used zone focus which any half-sensible street photographer would do) but the quality of film.

Henri Cartier-Bresson was not particularly held back by the quality of film, especially in his later work, but quite a significant proportion of his (albeit exquisite) work is actually only approximately in focus.
