You also have to take into account other factors like the design of the lens, the weight of the elements, etc.  Some lenses go through their distance range with a 90 degree twist while others take 180 degrees or more.  Usually your fast lenses, like 1.2 or 1.4, have the longer twist to fine tune focus better.

I think the lens most certainly determines AF speed but it goes further than if its just USM or not.
