Hi Andy,

The only place where it seems to make a difference on AF speed is with the larger lenses. In my case, that is just for the 50-200. Apparently it provides more energy to move the large lens elements. I have not seen this quantified and I have not to do so myself.

Hi Peter,

Understood, that clears things up a bit. Om my trip out yesterday, I thought the AF was pretty good, and seemed better than on the E510. Sounds like the only thought I had for keeping the HLD2 has been busted. It's heavy enough around the neck without the grip anyway
