I have the non-VC version for Nikon. It's sharp enough but the focusing is often slow and hunting for focus. Is the VC version better in terms of focus speed?

Thank you.

I recently sold mine (upgraded to FF), but from what I recall, it was fairly quick to focus. Not 'Nikon' quick, but I don't recall missing any shots because of focusing time.  I didn't have any issues with focus hunting either, although that might be more related to the body than the lens?
