Human reaction time. Take the test. How fast are you? The average time is .215 seconds.

Totally irrelevant, since the issue is when you press shutter, how long camera takes to respond, since you already have acted. No matter how much is one's reaction time, once we press the release button we want camera to take the picture, not add another lag.

From PC Mag's review:
"The E-M10 is a fast-shooting camera. It starts and captures a photo in about 0.9-second, records a scant 0.05-second shutter lag in good light."

INteresting the "good light" caveat. What is "good light"? Is the lag then not a shutter issue, but an AF issue. That's a different issue.
