Mirrorless start-up time

My Sony A7Rii takes about 2 sec. from turning the power on to be fully operational.

My Micro 4/3 cameras show similar start-up times. Once fully "booted", however, they are quick and snappy.

What causes this initial start-up delay, comparing to DSLRs with similar specifications?

As an electronic engineer, I don't see a reason... they have similar electronics inside, the only real difference is the viewfinder - it should not take that long to start!
