Re: How much latency in zoom lever?

"Often I want to zoom in and must wait an excruciatingly long time.

Is the F900EXR quick from power-on to zoom-in ready?"

This also a particular annoyance to me on many cameras. I find the F900 pretty good in this regard. As soon as the start up screen goes away, about a second after pressing ON, the zoom lever works.  (I just timed this watching the seconds tick by on my watch - not a precision measurement obviously)

(But if you are pressing the zoom while the startup screen is still on, the zoom does not work until you let up on it and then press it again.)
