I totally agree that AF is a must for street photography.

But as for other things, FE 35mm is NOT small. Just compare it to Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4.

I find f/2.8 to be too narrow for street photography. It doesn't give enough of DOF.

I think you wanted to say it gives too much DOF or not thin enough.

For decades street photography was done using zone focusing,

and I find the CV very good at this , no risk to completly "miss focus", though you are never spot on.
