Autofocus: how fast is fast?

I use an all-manual Nikkormat FT3. It works fine and it seems that the camera is going to last forever. However, I lost a few shots because it takes some time to adjust all the settings. The worst time I had when I tried to shoot a series in Moscow subway due to low light and high concentration of police. So I consider buying an AF camera for fast action.

On the other hand, I read on photo.net one person saying "I don't mind the slower AF on N80 compare to F100 since I manual focus faster with FM3A than those two cameras anyways, I think."

I have never used AF, so I wonder how fast is fast and how slow is slow? Is AF just more convenient than MF or can it really make shooting much faster?
