Not so slow

As some said, you do not want to use it the same way as other lenses. For this, when used indoors, do not use AF-C as it will hunt. Use AF-S, focus, lock, refocus, lock, etc, and do not use focus tracking … I use it to photograph my two toddler boys with no problem. Love the focal length, not too wide, not too long and it is a sharp lens. If you only care about a speed race test, then, yes, indeed, the 20 will be among the slowest lens for this platform. However if you learn its behavior and adapt, it will reward you with outstanding results.
