On my wife's D5100, the 18-200 focuses significantly slower than the 70-300...

Hmm that's weird, Ken mentioned the 18-200 is slightly faster, and when I tested it in the store it's noticeably faster too. It also seemed to take shorter to go from 18 to 200 even though going 70 to 300 should be easier. Maybe different cameras respond differently, I find it consistent with the V1 at least.
