Hi titti,

Welcome to the board!

AF speed depends on 2 things: the lens, and the camera body.

The Canon 5D camera body focuses much more quickly than a Contax N1. Therefore, the same 17-35/2.8 lens focuses much more quickly on the 5D than on the N1.

But the Carl Zeiss lens itself turns more slowly than a Canon lens. That is because Carl Zeiss lenses are constructed with heavy metal focusing helicoils, which are slower to turn.

Since you already own the Contax N1, you will notice a significant improvement in AF speed for the two lenses you own once you convert them to Canon EF mount.
