But back on topic, as you rightly say, there really is no shutter lag. With modern cams such as these Fujis, for practical purposes, it doesn't exist.

I agree. I've never really noticed "shutter lag" on the X-E1.

Do you guys shoot toddlers running around the house or have facial expressions that can sometimes last less than 0.05 secs ? Since the shutter lag is 0.05 secs, it simply means that from the time you press the button to the time the picture is taken, the facial expression has gone away.

I've own an X100, X100S, XE-2 (and before that canons) so I at least have a pretty good idea of what I'm talking about. Going from X100 to X100s or XE-2 was a big step that keeps me at least happy. But there is still some way to go and saying it's not problem under any circumstance is simple not true IMHO.

No. But if I did want quality pics of fast moving toddlers I would pick my moment and catch them when they were a little less active ... kids do stop from time to time, at least that's my experience. If we want the sort of IQ that the Fuji is all about, isn't it about timing?

Otherwise we may as well use a camera with true machine gun ability. I once had an E100RS in 2001, with 15 frs for use with my kids - brilliant cam & worked a treat. "the fastest digital camera in the world with the ability to shoot at 15 frames per second (or 7.5, 5, or 3 fps). The 9.5MB internal SD-RAM buffer, 28MHz 1.51-megapixel high-speed CCD and image processing electronics allows for capturing 1360 x 1024 images at less than 1.2 second intervals at all times, even uncompressed TIFF"
