Q2 Mono low-light focus?

I have only one real gripe about my Q2: autofocus and the EVF in low light. If it's dim—like ISO 12,800 dim—my EVF gets really laggy and the camera's AF gets very slow. Manual focusing becomes difficult because of the laggy EVF.

The Q2M has amazing low-light image quality. But how is the focusing system and the EVF? Suppose that I'm in a dim club, taking pictures of a band. This would be very hard with the Q2, I think. Would the Q2M perform better? Or if I were in a darkened room, taking pictures of a candlelit dinner. Would focus be faster on the Q2M than on the Q2?
