I've heard of while the AF is faster, the AF also misses more often as they 'removed' the pump/check of the focus point. In addition the macro on the fly ability is reduced as it takes more than one try to get the camera to switch into macro mode on auto or you manually need to change it to macro mode to get it to close focus.
