60mm f2.4 macro question

Just wondering how is the lens nowadays with upgraded firmware and on new XT2 firmware. I'd like some beefier lenses but im trying to keep the size weight and cost down for now...

Does it still  hunt like crazy say at portrait distances with all the firmware updates? While  back I had 35 1.4 and it was quite horrible focus speed and hunting wise especially in lower light.

Now i only have 18-55 , 23 f2 which im not sure if i should replace eventually with 1.4 one and 35 f2 is on the way right now.  Id love to finish  the f2 trifecta but I think the 60 would be more useful as all around longer lens.

I want them all lol. Just trying to stay sane and kind to my bank account 

Also thinking  about the 14 2.8 but not sure if 10-24 or 16 is not better choice.

Thanks
