Sigma 24mm with the MC-11 - low light on the street

I was out the other night using the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 with the MC-11 adaptor (see above). The important bit of this report is that I didn't have to think of it as an adapted lens at all. It functioned seamlessly as an E-Mount lens.

The 24mm is my only Sigma lens, so I keep the MC-11 on it all the time. That's important for me because when I change lenses, the rear cap from the lens going on goes onto the lens coming off. With the MC-11 always on, the Sigma 24mm is just another E-Mount.

It was reasonably low light, so the focusing speed wasn't what I would expect in normal daylight. I haven't done any side-by-side testing, but in low light I think the Sigma is about as fast as the Zeiss 85mm (Batis).
