Re: Auto focus lag - Startup slow - A99

When I got the A77, I quickly realized, that don't work. Turn it on, leave it on. Take your picture, leave it on until the next one. It's modern electronics now, and has to "boot", not a lever cocking a spring when you also advance the film....

This is worrying. I hardly see the need for a camera to leave you waiting 2-4 seconds on startup as a progress or a sign of modernity, when you know that the earlier OVF generation was pretty much instant at starting up...
