Re: Shutter lag time

Well, there has to be some lag, right? Just like with an SLR. You have to wait for the mirror to flip out of the way and the shutter to open. Here you have to wait for the curtain to close, the sensor to dump data and the shutter to open. It happens very quickly, but it's always going to be there to a degree. The question is how much.

I agree, the question for me is: is it any less on the X-E2?  The X-E1 IMHO has a bit too much for it to be useful for shooting rapidly changing subjects.  I'm not expecting performance like my D3s, but I honestly believe that it could be better.  And I'm sure I read that Fuji improved it for another X camera recently.

I asked quite specific questions of the other two posters because I want to make sure we're all talking about the same thing - pure shutter lag.
