My first digital camera was a Nikon CoolPix 880. That thing had a serious shutter lag issue, you could never tell when it would take the picture. My G11 is a lot better but my former 20D, my former 5DII as well as my current 5DIII and 50D are perfectly usable. There are issues with all of these cameras but shutter lag wouldn't even make my list.

There is 18ms shutter lag difference in favor of D800.

That is huge in my book and I can detect the diference.

There is a reason I hate driving SUVs and stick with BMWs with sport suspension.

Maybe your reaction time is slow and 18ms makes no difference to you.

Personally, when I can discern 1/18,000 of a second difference in shutter lag between one camera and another, I think I will have paid too much attention to the least important things in photography. As long as the response time is reasonable–which, as far as I'm concerned, both 5DIII and D800 are–success becomes less a matter of camera specification than of the photographer knowing how to "drive" the cameras.
