Looks good. How's the AF with this lens on both the M1 & M2? Assuming C-AF doesn't really work, but is S-AF pretty snappy? Anything to compare it to? Is it sluggish like 1st gen Fuji and Sony?

So here is my quick non-scientific AF speed test between Sigma/EF-M2 and Olympus 50-200 non-SWD/no-name adapter at iso200 and f2.8 for both lenses (Oly at 147mm was actually at f3.2).
I measured time for lens to get in focus 10 times swapping between 2m and 10m target (including my lousy technique):
Sigma at 50mm 21s
Sigma at 142mm 23s
Olympus at 50mm 20s
Olympus at 147mm 23s
To my surprise not much difference there.

Regarding C-AF, as you said, it couldn't track a horse slow-walking towards me. It's that slow.
