Sony Zeiss 50/1.4 || Autofocus speed problem

Hey everyone,

just a quick question. At the moment i own both the Sony Zeiss 50/1.4 and 55/1.8 and much prefer the IQ of the 50/1.4. The thing is that i still only have the Sony a7ii and 55/1.8 is waaay quicker on it. With the Planar moving objects are almost impossible to lock focus on. For a long time i believed 50/1.4 is just normally on the slow side, but recently i read a review where it's said to be ,,a very fast focusing lens". So im not sure if its a problem with an old camera or the lens. I'm considering selling 55/1.8 to buy a7iii or a7rii where i hope Planar would focus way faster. Can you please share how this lens performs on your camera body?
