We will see how good the AF and how short the shutter lag is.

Until now every compact camera I used was to slow for candid people photos. It drives me crazy if I have to wait for the camera or if I have to pre-focus and then wait for the next moment.

Fast AF and short shutter lag isn't just something for action or sports photography. In my opinion it's important for almost any type of photography that isn't completely static.
