I just got my 60mm from the local camera shop a couple of days ago. In the store on my X-E2 it hunted a lot, however the firmware in the lens was not current. Once I got it home and updated the firmware, all was well as others have noted.

At normal distances it seems to take about a second to get focused with minimal hunting.

For macro, I first switch the X-E2 to MACRO mode, then focus (half press shutter) on a close subject. This quickly extends the barrel to "macro range" and then the lens takes another second or so to focus. Once it's in "macro range" it focuses about the same as normal distances.
