D300 AF is slow??

I'm really surprised to read comments about the D300 AF being slow. I owned both the 1DmarkIII & the D300 and ended up selling canon's flagship camera in favor of the D300 (and now D700). Canon's AF just plain sucked in comparison.

I shoot fast, erratically moving subjects and have been 100% happy w/the D300's AF performance. In my experience, when used with the 24-70 or 70-200 all you have to do is THINK about focusing on something.

Maybe it's the 18-200 that's slowing down the AF? I rented that lens to try it out and decided not to buy it - though I can't remember why. Maybe it was the pokey AF??
