    I don't know about anyone else out there, but after picture quality,
    the most important feature to me is boot time and recycle time. We
    mostly take pictures of our kids, and when we see a photo opportunity,
    we want to grab it as soon as possible. There's not a lot of
    information out there about boot (startup) and recycle (time between
    pictures) times, and it doesn't seem to be a standard specification
    that's published by the manufacturers. Does anyone know where I can
    compare cameras by this feature?

    If it helps, the two brands I'm considering are Canon (Powershot A95
    or others), and Sony (multiple models).

    Thanks for your help!

    Doesn't every full review on DPReview give this info?

    I don't know much about the P&S, but the D70 is basically instant on
    and no detectable delay on shooting. However if you use a big lens
    there may be a short focusing delay.

  4. This is pretty much my experience with my new Konica-Minolta Maxxum 7D -
    when I turn it on, it is ready to go before I get it up to my eye.
    Shutter lag seems quite minimal after AF is achieved - that varies
    greatly with lens and lighting conditions.
