I'm constantly amazed how seldom the issue of shutter lag comes up in these fora

That’s because the lag depends heavily on your camera settings.

If you set the camera to manual focus and set focus to infinity, and then just leave the camera at 28mm for street photography, there is no lag. That’s because the majority of the lag comes from focusing. So people learn to adjust.

With the G11 we see the return of Quick Shot mode, where the camera is continually adjusting its focus and exposure without the shutter being pressed, so the shutter lag may be reduced while full functionality is available, but at the cost of battery life.
