I just used the stopwatch on my phone with my left hand, and with my right hand I turned on the camera, and took a photo (manual focus). Once I heard the shutter I stopped the stopwatch. This took exactly 1.01 seconds.

That's pretty fast. Is that turning "on" from sleep/suspend mode? Because that's even faster than my Nex 6. Perhaps you should switch hands and operate the stopwatch on the opposite hand to rule out any lag from your less dominant hand? =]

Actually, I can't see how I could even turn on the camera and take a photo with my left hand without spraining it, haha!

Your comment about "sleep" mode intrigued me. So I took out the battery and reinserted it, to ensure a cold boot. This time it took about 4 seconds to fire a shot. I wonder how long this sleep mode lasts. When I have a camera in hand I often switch it off to save power, then switch it on again and have no noticed any delay.

I read one review that talked about a 3+ second start up time, but then quick after that, even after leaving it off for quite a while. Maybe it's in standby as long as it has a good battery, and just takes a long time for a true cold boot, as you demonstrated.
