5D Operating Speed

I'm in the midst of considering an upgrade from my 300D to a 5D, and as such have posted a few questions about the 5D.

I just thought of another. How is the "operating speed" of the 5D (at least that's what I'd call it). By that I mean the speed at which the 5D starts up, writes captured images to CF, reviews images on the CF card, and other operations such as these.

When out shooting an event with a friend this past weekend who has a Sony A100 (nothing fancy, but new) I was shocked at how unbearable the sluggishness of my 300D has now become after playing with the A100.

I don't expect the 5D to be as fast as the 40D (the other body I am considering) in these regards, but was just looking for some idea of how it matched up.

Thanks.
