Re: Auto focus lag - Startup slow - A99

Startup time from power on to first picture on my A99 is about 3 seconds. It's a wee bit slower than the A77 but not something I regard as a problem.

As for the autofocus "lag" you described, I just don't see it. If the light is low, it may take the A99 a fraction of a second to focus. Strikes me as not unreasonable. In good light it focuses rather quickly.

I'm not sure whether I see the same thing you see but I have lower expectations than you do, or whether my A99 is performing better than yours.
