The sharpest lens in the world looks like the worst lens in the world if it's not in focus.

For me, street photography HAS to be fast.  The goal is a snapshot of a fleeting moment, often with the subject unaware and unposed.  That is a difficulty thing with manual focus.

I do street photography with the FE35.  Works great - sharp, lovely, and best of all... small.  The combo with the A7/r makes it a very unimposing rig if you need to be stealthy.
