How slow is the 60mm real world

Moving from sony. the NEX7 focuses extremely slowly and imho poorly.  My success rate for candid photos is about 25%,  Was a pro for a long time and handicapped and assumed movement because of my issues but it is not movement, poor focus.

Got the XT1 with the kit lens and it is shockingly good, love the camera as well.  will likely get the WA zoom (hard to change lenses).  Have it in my mind to get the 60 but is it that bad?? can't afford/justify the 56 1.2 unless I give up the WA zoom.

Thoughts on how bad the 60 really is now especially with the XT1
thought maybe the 14m and 56mm but changing glass is perilous and the 14 / kit / 56 is more scary than  WA/Kit/60m

any thoughts

mostly landscape, cityscape and non professional portraiture (grandkids, friends, etc) also love flowers

Types of work I like to do.
