I just bought the 55-200 a few days ago and in testing it I found similar results to you. After focus is acquired, if I release the shutter button and repress it pointing at the same object, it defocuses then refocus which doesn't make sense.

I went through the auto focus menu and I believe it's the last option to turn on Pre-AF. By default it's off. I turned it on and that has made a huge improvement. Now the 18-55 focuses faster also. Like you, this whole system is new to me.
