simply put - yes

focus speed is a function of the camera sensor, processor and lens motor (with a bit of gearing and whether it can work both ways...)

e3 will deliver on the first 2 so the speed will increase on existing lenses.

that said the 50-200 has quite a long focus range, only goes one way etc so the SWD version will give more gain than, for expample, I would expect to see from the 12-60 over the 14-54

still a good gain though
