Is Nikon Micro 105mm/2.8 VR Autofocus fast?

I am using D700
I am considering the Nikon 105mm/2.8 VR Micro lens.

I intend to use it for Macro.
I also intend to use it for portrait.

I want to know if AutoFocus is fast please.
If comparison can be made to the following lens that I own,
it would be more helpful to me.

Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G: (My rating: Very Fast AF)
Nikon AF 35mm f/2D (My rating: Very Fast AF )
Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4G (My rating: disappointingly slow AF

Many thanks.
Other comments on the Nikon 105mm Micro VR also welcome.
