    ok i apologize for my mis-info, but you are right about the above, zerocool always write in a neutral tone. your question at me was quite offensive (and offer nothing but suggesting that i'm talking thru my butt), so i became defensive.

    That's like placing an ND8 filter in front of the lens. So.... still sure about the OF COURSE ???
    sorry bro i'm just thinking in purely technical aspect. like with EVERYTHING being the same (i know in actual fact they are not), both lens the same aperture and everything else, i would assume the internal AF is faster than that without one.

    anyway, i'm wrong and i better shut up here or else there might be flaming.

    was offensive, then I would beg to differ. It was a direct question. Blunt, yes. Offensive, no.

    Anyway, I think it was a mis-understanding. Another example of how words can somehow be mis-interpreted over the internet, since they are just words and you don't hear them being spoken.
    Exploring! :)

    It's called being "concise".
