24-200 Z Lens - Poor Focus Performance?

Hello all,

I just received my 24-200 F/4-6.3 and I am experiencing very poor focus performance compared to my 24-70. Is this your experience as well?

The lens in AF-C will acquire then lose focus very quickly (in all modes). AF-S Single Pnt, Dynamic, etc. also perform in a similar fashion. The camera is not locking focus anywhere near the speed or confidence that my 24-70 is.

I'm trying to determine if I just received a poor copy and try to exchange it.

Update:  Sometimes you just need to toggle the On/Off switch... Performance is still not as good as I was hoping for though.  How varied can different copies of lenses actually actually be?
