Its NOT a weaker or inferior AF motor

oh yes, a tenth of a second is massive.... right! And no mention of the 22mm hunting more... but yes I see the consensus is that the 22mm is a bit slower, think its due to the weaker AF motor (as someone mentioned). but in practice I don't notice that tenth...

Its not a weaker or inferior AF motor, it`s that the 18-55 focusses using a tiny internal element whereas the 22mm Focusses using the whole front group and bezel

When I got the 18-55 I wondered what all the fuss was about re the focussing, I didn`t notice it to focus much faster in the field than the 22mm
