Prior to my picking up the XF35, I read a bunch of comments on how slow and loud the AF is. Seems great to me.

Some people have different standards. the XF35's auto focus motor was sourced straight out of Canon's 1985 reject bin.

My Nikon 35mm f/1.8 lens is much, much faster and is absolutely silent.

Yep. That's why the 60mm needs to be compared against the lens he has, the 18-55 zoom because one person's "loud and slow" is another person's "i think is pretty good".
