I find the AF fast, but I was already satisfied by the D40. Now that you mention it, though, I would say in low light the D5100 AF seems to be more reliable and much less 'hunty' than the D40.
(With my 35mm f1.8 AF-S)

What I noticed was the D90 AF system seemed more accurate and I could get some moving targets I doubt i would have got with the D60 - eg FA-18s flying past on ANZAC day here in Oz. I think the D5/100 and D3/100 all have the D90s AF system or very similar.
