That slowness means that they can't really do the "dance" that CD-AF requires, move the lens a little, see if contrast is increasing or decreasing, move it the other way a little, repeat until something gets in focus.

Thanks for the explanation ! That makes sense when I recall trying a 4/3 lens on an EP1 and watching it get close focus quickly, then 'dance' around correct focus for a frustrating amount of time.
