how fast is *ist DS?

Hi,

I own a Sony 717 and I was wondering to buy a DSLR. I had in the past a couple of Pentax SLR and still own the lenses so *ist DS is the first natural choiche.

Actually I am not very interested in startup time because it is OK even in my SONY and I know the DS will be a lot faster. I am bothered with the time the SONY takes to actually release the shutter after you press the fire button. How fast is the Ds in this respect? I had the opportunity to try the 350D and it is quite immediate. Is it the same?

I aslo wonder how hard is to use manual focus leses (K mount) without the split viewfinder screen. Is somebody able to provide me some impression?

Last question, does the Ds come already with a pack of batteries and a charger or I need to buy them on my own?

I will also appreciate any other suggestion that you can provide.

Thank you for your help

best regards
marco
