Macro lenses are slow to focus period. You accept that if you use a macro lens for non-macro work. The 60 is very slow if you compare it to the 56mm f1.2, but not so slow compared to a typical macro lens. It is optomised for focussing close up where DoF is very narrow, and it doesn't have a very wide aperture.

It's an excellent lens though.
