Re: 50-200mm NON SWD V's SWD Versions

Does anyone have any experience of the relative speeds of focusing between the old version and the SWD please? I'm a fan of the 50-200 epecially with the EC14 but it sometimes fails to focus accurately on birds, even large ones like red kites, in flight. Sometimes it hunts a fair bit as it tries to find the bird. I am wondering if it would be worth upgrading to the newer model to get a quicker focus.
