Nikon DX tele lenses autofocus speed
7 months ago

Dear DPreview community,

After using my nikkor 55-200mm VR lens for many years, I find the autofocus speed lacking. Photographing closing objects, animals or people will always be out of focus because the continues autofocus on this particular lens is apparently too slow.

My interest point me to the nikkor 70-300mm VR lens and I wish to buy one. But I still need to know if the (continues) autofocus in this lens is noticeably faster then my current 55-200mm VR lens. Does anybody know more about this or even compared this for themselves?

Thank you in advance.
