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.

AF will always come with a size penalty. By any measure, the FE35 is tiny.

If you want greater DOF, why in the world would you want a larger aperture?

Sorry, meant to say thinner DOF.
