I will use the smaller AF square from now on and then fine tune it with manual focus assist.

I've been looking on the ebay completed listings of the 20mm f1.7 lens and it looks like the cheapest I can get it for is around £175.

Please, do not confuse yourself and others. For your night streets shots you DO NOT FINE TUNE.

Simply pick up a contrasty brighter spot nearby your target, lock the focus, and recompose, take a shot.

Why so? I have read that using manual focus for night time street photography is recommended.
