Re: Something to do with initializing the lens?

15-20 seconds startup time does sound like a fault or bug. Maybe this has to do with it (taken from the 7R review:

While most mirrorless cameras start up in under a second, the a7R isn't ready to shoot for a little over two. We've also noticed that if the power is quickly cycled, the delay can be twice that. Interestingly enough, the camera is ready to shoot in nearly half a second with no lens attached, so the delay may have something to do with initializing the lens.

So maybe try to start the camera without a lens attached.

or with a legacy manual lens attached, as i suggested earlier...

if that improves it, start comparing different modern lenses, to see if it's related to a few specific pieces of glass.

thanks for the info.
