I think the answer depends on what you mean by operation.

Operation to adjust parameters is great.  I really like how the controls are arranged, the customization you can do, the way the quickset menus work.

I also find operation between shots (changing settings) to be quick.

The aspects of operation that are slow - waiting for the buffer to clear when full, waiting to review a shot after taking.

I don't think focus is that much slower than any other contrast based AF camera, and is fairly configurable to offer smaller and larger focus points, with quick re-adjustment of where the focus points are (just nine of them though).
