Obviously the reviews will be copyrighted, and I won't be nicking their graphs, but I'm quite happy to précis the conclusions and any bits of detail that seem to me to be particularly interesting.
So now we just have to wait
You're right Chris about the assumption that because a lens is screw drive it won't focus fast. It does, of course, depend a lot on the lens. Oddly enough I find that my old KAF lenses dating from the 35mm film camera days focus much faster than the more recent lenses. The Pentax KAF 50mm f1.4 and Tamron 80-210 f4.5-5.6 focus really quickly. I guess they must have fewer internal elements to shift about.
