I`m still thinking I`ll get XF 56mm (APD?) one day

Sidenote here, the APD version does not work with phase detect AF, so it will focus much slower no matter which camera you put it on

Yeah, I know, but thanks for bringing it up anyway. I`m not counting much on 56mm auto-focus abilities, and especially in low-light (and that for auto-focus in general). I wouldn`t mind if it were a full-manual lens, either - it`s modern design/coatings that interest me the most. Otherwise, even auto-focus should be fine in good light.

The funny thing is I went Fuji with X-T3, supposedly being one of their best auto-focus cameras to date, and I`m now using it with manual focus only lens(es) for the most of the time... go figure, lol. But I do value various other X-T3`s features/improvements, and good auto-focus is certainly nice to have, if not even crucial at times, of course.
