Does it also do it when you wake your camera up from sleeping, or just turning on initially?

It seems as though they have an issue that makes Micro Four Thirds cameras lag and take a long time to turn on. Does anyone have these that can replicate this?


I have the 30mm and have noticed it takes a couple of seconds to start on my EP-2, but it isn't a deal breaker for me. I like the quality of the shots it takes and tend to walk around with the camera already on, so it isn't an issue for me. Very sharp with quick focus, so I am keeping my copy. Here is a nice shot with it:

I suppose Sigma could update the firmware to make this issue go away.
