I agree with the AF performance. I would rate it as adequate, not blistering, but not sluggish either. You have to remember that this camera is nearing 10 years since it was introduced and AF performance has come a long way since then! It does have 9 points, which is not bad for a camera of its age.
Re- the data capture, I just wish there was an easier way to transfer the data, then having to buy one of the readers (awfully expensive) or hand writing (which is what I do).
The other interesting feature is the STF focus function. I have heard that it works well, but I have never tried it myself!
BTW, there is still a review available online (By Gary Friedman, so he's probably a bit biased) from when it was released:
