DA 18-135 and K200D

Has anyone here who owns the new DA 18-135 used it on a K200D? Is the focusing speed just as quick as I've read it is on a K5?

Thanks, BobG

I think, that the speed of the lens motor is the same regardless of camera. What will be different however is how fast the camera makes the lens react to its calculations.

I gave it a try. It felt pretty fast but I'm it may have been faster on my K-7 (I've sold the lens so I cannot re-test, sorry). It definitely benefits from K-7 and K-5 corrections, the CA above 100mm was fairly strong on the k200d - but I expect a bit of PP can solve it.
