90 might be stretching it, but with normal and wide lenses this truly is 
the case once a person gets used to focusing the M way. Maybe not faster, 
but surely more accurately. And that translates to speed.

Unless we all, like HC-B put a red dot at 12 meters and leave it there and 
hyperfocal. :-)
