Buy LA-EA2 or a cheap SLT camera body for faster AF?

I have long considered purchasing the LA-EA2 for my NEX-7 along with the SAL 85mm lens for those occasions I need a fast (and fast focusing) option.

Checking the prices I found that an SLT-37 body is only about $/€50 more than the lens adapter. Plus it takes the same batteries as the NEX cameras.

Common sense tells me to get the SLT-37, does anybody here have experience with the low-end SLT-alpha cameras? Is the SLT's AF as fast as the NEX-7 with LA-EA2?
