No one in the history of civilization ever bought an X-E1 for it's AF performance.  That said I love mine but it hunts now and then and is not ideal for moving objects.  If speed is an issue you'll want to look more closely at the X-T1 or X-E2.

And keep in mind the 18-55 is not a constant f/2.8, so the more you zoom the smaller the aperture, the slower the focus.

I'm delighted with mine but I don't have fast AF requirements and the occasional hunting in poor light doesn't cause me much grief.
