I've avoided the 35, partially because I've got too many lenses nearly that focal length. 31, 35 f2, 40... But also as a macro missed focus can be painfully slow when used as a normal lens.
True.
It's my only lens around that focal length... But I particular love the long focus throw for manual focusing.
And I found in good light it's pretty snappy at focusing; though if you miss you will hear it buzz and wurrr around until it finds your subject.

That's great to hear, thanks.

Am I bringing too much gear?
IMHO you took way too much lens wise... me I always travel light, just primes, usually nowadays "Good Lady” (Pentax-A 20mm F2.8), "Special Lady” (Pentax-A 50mm F1.2), “Sweetheart” (Pentax-A* 85mm F1.4) and “Gorgeous Lady” (Pentax-A* 200mm F2.8 ED) which I find more than enough to lug aboot.

I hope you really enjoyed the Italian leg of your trip, good food/wine, chilling and watching the world go by.

For me Rome and Florence are two of my top World locations, only to be pipped by Venice.
