I have read several reviews of the D6 and am wondering how the AF systems compare. I know that the D6 has a whole new AF systems but don't really get a feel of how this compares to the D5 specifically in speed?

I'd keep an eye on Brad Hill's Blog. He's compiling a treasure trove of insight regarding the new 120-300 2.8 lens and with it remarking on a variety of body/lens metrics including focus acquisition speed, (which I'm assuming you're referring to). He mentions:

"The D6 plus 120-300mm f2.8E combo exhibits the best autofocus performance of any camera/lens system I have shot, even if teleconverters are added into the equation. Period."

See his blog from November 30:
