When used on the X-T1, the AF performance of the 60mm comes down to having the PDAF kick in or not. If it does (which happens in good light and as long as your subject shows the "right" structure), the AF is instant and I bet that you wouldn't find any measurable difference compared with any other X-lens. If it doesn't, it all comes down to motor speed, since the CDAF needs to pulse in both directions at least once to determine which way to go. Then, the 60 can be a bit slower than other lenses in the lineup, but as long as you're not shooting closeups, it shouldn't be a big deal for your type of shooting. I can highly recommend the lens, I like it a lot (and I've gone though all the ups and downs using it from the first day when the X-E1 became available).
