I’ve been on 6 pro-led street photography workshops in various countries since 2015, and I can only recall 2 attendees (other than me) with full frame Sonys (and I only use mine for low light & night street shooting). Everyone else was using m4/3 or APSC during the day (especially Fuji and Ricoh, with a handful of A6xxx bodies).

Probably some Leica monochroms too

I use single AF or zone focus with the 35 cz and never felt limited by the a7 with this lens. I'd say it focuses faster and more silent than ricoh gr3 and gr2. The silent shutter may be something to consider though, but it may not be the priority for the OP.

Silent shutter is nice.  I know when I photograph in some of the back alleys in Tokyo and Hong Kong, the click of a shutter can draw attention.  I find the small size camera that can be silent to be a nice option.  The OP needs to look at the type of work most common and the output media the work will be viewed at. 
I don’t see too many Leicas on the street.  In Asia, lots of Ricoh, Fuji and Olympus for people wandering the streets photographing.  Seeing large FF is actually very rare.
