Depends. It is not sluggish in AF-s. When you want to use it for action, BIF or speedy animals or sports, you cannot rely on the AF-c system at all. It loses focus, it slows down the system a lot. If you expected good performance, like with the 35-100, it will be a frustrating experience I think.
You could find ways to work around this with MF and FP, far from ideal I think but some seem to be really good at it.
