What is XT1 low light rating? is it EV -1/-2/-3 etc?

Hi.  I cannot find this figure in specs.    You know how some of the latest cameras go down to (-4EV) Canon 6D, Panasonic GX7, Sony A7s.    Some of the previous ones I think went to -3EV (Canon 5DM3).   About a month and a half ago I had an issue with autofocus on XT1 with 18-55.  It was pretty dark at a local restaurant.  My AF assist light was off,  Camera could not focus.   I know for a fact because I've shot at the same restaurant in the same lighting conditions with several other cameras in the past (one of my favorite restaraurant) and have never ran into this problem before.  Even my old Canon T2i that has EV - 0.5  rating focused there with a F/2.8 zoom.     I'd think that 18-55 2.8-4 is not much different.
