XF16F1.4 for sports?

I currently use an XF16F2.8 while mountain biking. The AF is nice and fast for action, but I'm often in low light in the woods (Vancouver, BC).  Has anybody used the 16F1.4 for shooting action. I keep reading that the AF is middle of road in speed..not fast, not slow.  AF speed is pretty important for my use. As a comparison, I have the XF18F2 and I find the AF not fast enough with it. All the fujicrons are fast enough, though. I mostly use the 23 and the 16..the 16 just doesn't let enough light in.  Thoughts?

thx

Clive
