She's right

It's not something that makes a whole lot of sense unless you have a good professional body and a prosumer body with the same lens on each. For example, I have a D80 and an F100 (not quite pro, I guess, but it has a significantly better AF processor and motor than the D80).

Using a 35mm f/1.8G: the lens pauses at each end of the focusing range (incl. a moment of hesitation at the beginning) and on the whole takes at least twice as long to lock focus on the D80 as it does on the F100.
Same lens, same motor, different AF processor.
