The issue is not that the mirror hasn't finished doing its thing, but that your body is doing a bunch of other stuff besides being present with taking the shot.  If you're already heading towards the next shot opportunity as you squeeze the shutter, you haven't quieted your body enough to reliably give you a good capture.  If I might use a rifle analogy, it's the difference between a sharpshooter and a machine gunner.  The sharpshooter goes through a whole zen ritual...

Always a well thought out, well expressed opinion from mossw.

Interesting discussion. The first months with my new D7000, I was getting fewer focused shots than with the old D80. So, on a recent trip I used shutter priority most of the time to keep SS high. Also, as mentioned above, I paid more attention to bracing the camera and tried a no breathing calm before firing. A lot more keepers now. I’d have never guessed a mp increase would magnify that much of difference.

(I know its old news, but I’m really loving this camera, it's hugely capable.)
