Will the shutter delay be less with the G11?

That's a good question. Shutter lags of recent Canon G-series have been typically Canon with 0.5-0.7 sec full autofocus shutter lags and 0.07 prefocus shutter lag. What has been unusual is that with flash, an additional 0.3 sec is tacked on. Other Canons don't have this trait and I've often wondered why just the G-series.

This added 0.3 sec iis discussed in the footnote of the performance page of the G9 and G10 dpreviews. For the G7 it was even higher at 0.5 seconds. I can definitely see this added delay when I checked out these G-series cameras in the store. There is definitely a difference with and without flash.

So the question is, "What about the G11 shutter lag with flash"?
