you sound like one of the people that should not have gotten this camera. I knew it was slow before I purchased it. My work is set up stuff, even in the field. I have no need for quick response. While your times seem abnormally slow---suggesting something wrong at your end---nobody who paid attention to the specs would have chosen this camera as a quick response device.

Perhaps you didn't fully account for your own style of shooting?

Shooting style has nothing to do with how long a camera takes to start up. You knew start up could often take 10-20 seconds before you bought it? Really? Terrible response from you.

Reminds me of the people who defended the Fuji X100 when it was launched, ignoring the fact that it was simply faulty from day 1!

As for the Sony experiences, I can only refer to the 2 times I've tried the A7 in 2 different shops, and I can confirm that neither of those took anywhere near that amount of time to start up, so something is definitely a miss there (unless this is another difference between the A7 and the A7r?)

Can't comment on the other issues. Tho these comments along with a few others do suggest a firmware makeover is required.

I still hope to buy one tho
