How's the AF on the Samyang?

Having had the 85 GM and FE 85/1.8, I find that with firmware at latest update, it genuinely performs at native speeds. Its taken Samyang a few generations, but its seems like since the AF 85/1.4, they have Sony AF nearly perfected, and would expect all newer of their lenses to not have any AF envy of native Sony.
