Yongnuo 565EX Question - Wireless (light) CMD compared to Hotshoe TTL

On testing my newly acquired Yongnuo for Nikon 565EX on a D7000 and being a newbie regarding TTL dedicated flashes I noticed the following.

1. D7000 popup flash set to CMD & YN565EX flash set to Slave:
A noticeable delay while the D7000 sends the wireless (light) signal and focuses. Subject soft with droopy eyelids.
Tried this with red eye, front and rear sync. Same.

2. D7000 popup flash down, YN565EX mounted on hotshoe, both set to TTL.
Problem solved.

I may just end up getting a TTL cord. I should also consider a set of 622's

(I have a set of of Yong RF603II for my manual flash, but these do not provide TTL)

I would appreciate your answers: ie. Is using wireless (light pulses) slower when using off camera TTL?

Nikon D7000
